Dancing in Summer Winds

Dancing in Summer Winds

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

Soft scenes consume our collective memories in the sweetest roar When the moon spills out its heart into what we feel

"


Soft scenes consume our collective memories in the sweetest roar

When the moon spills out its heart into what we feel
We find ourselves looking back at the paths we walked upon
At the small things because we wish to breathe in
The simple dust of youth from our heels

We steal away to places where our souls sang in summer winds
Leaving the silence that has been ours to choose
No longer turning our backs on small things we treasure
We breathe in that which softens our hearts
From the weathered soles of our shoes

Looking up with faces that now smile, we can surely recall
Opening those doors full of warmth once again
We still find delight in small things that we treasured
And though it seems that it has been forever
Our feet still dance in summer winds

Looking back is often the better view, so I've found, and you've captured that experience wonderfully.

Beautifully romantic writing, with the images of the mooon, and the recollection of the 'sweetest roar'... and with the passage of time, those moments of warmth and delight are still to be found, as we dance in the summer's pleasures...

The carefully crafted structure supports the writing so well..
