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!

Same experience this year here in Virginia. The heat and humidity have been terrible. I love this image of the dandepuff. It offsets perfectly the images created in word. Well done!

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. :)

Hey there Kelly, love those August days so thick you need a knife to cut through them, either that or a swimming pool... ;0) but then we have your poem bring us the summer's heat yet feels like a cold drink of lemonade as I read it... nicely done Kelly
