Begging for a Summer Existence

Begging for a Summer Existence

A Poem by kera moondust

I was told to write a poem about summer, long story short. I did


The trees are green again

My body begs for those large leafy shade trees

Covering me from that hot sun that will bake

This all too pale

                Skin of mine


The ever warm sun will disappear but its warmth

Will remain

Leaving only this

                                Ever perfect



I’ve never been a fan of winter

The way it apprehended me and my thoughts in it’s all too

                Frigid dead grip

Grasping these broken thoughts that tricked me into believing

The only thing in this world is that winter

And in time I always feel like

I’m going to forget

                What those summer trees

           Look like


Of course winter doesn’t last forever

And even on the coldest, darkest nights

The sun

Even on its cold pale December mornings

                Always returns

The solstice always passes like clockwork

And the summer warmth ever so gradually

                Always returns to my toes


My mind suddenly remembers what it’s like to lounge

Under those leafy shade trees

On late august afternoons

The sun still shining well into the



It’s been said people fall in love during the summer

I think mostly it’s the weather

The ability to go out

And do things

That says people fall in love


I can’t say I’ve ever experienced that

But maybe this summer

                My last summer

I will fall in love



                If only

                                For a little



And I wonder if

When autumn inevitably comes

If I will still look that lover in the eyes

And say that his eyes are the blues of the starry sky

Propelling me to this beachy existence

                I’ve done nothing but

                                Beg for

too bad my eyes are brown lol.
anyways, I like this piece, it clearly comes from the heart. personally I prefer the fall to the summer, and I like winter so long as it's not freezing, whereas summer would be nice if it weren't so incredibly boiling hot. there's gotta be a place where the summers not too hot and the winters not too cold, right? probably not though lol
