August

August

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

August

 

 

It was August
and summer

was thick in the air,

like the concentrated efforts
of a trapeze artist.

That's a great metaphor of August bout to tip over, holding onto summer. September is about to get up there and start banging on that wire. Good one, kelly!

Snap-shot visuals..that is what your poetry causes. Single images written in a way that provokes the senses to feel the images. Nicely done, Kelly. :)
