Georgia Summers

Georgia Summers

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

 

Georgia Summers

 

 

Georgia summers

were as piquant as

a mint julep in July.

Languid days of skinny-dipping,

where temperatures were as high as

the traversing of hands

 underneath a skirt

of fettered gauze.

I am so pleased you enjoyed this...thank you!
dear Kelly... We are so similar to birds
who love to splash in the heat of day,
perhaps in the shade of an old elm tree
or a Georgia River. Elegant sensuous
poetry and art. truly, Pat
