Awaiting Summertime

Awaiting Summertime

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

Awaiting Summertime

 

The sun high

Beams down upon earth.

Birds sing from high lines

For all their worth.

 

Blue skies spread out

As far as eye can see.

White marshmallow clouds

Form friends imaginary.

 

Trees dance in rhyme

To a warm breeze.

Squirrels scurry to hide

Acorns in tree knots plenty.

 

The calendar proclaims
Summertime is near.

But hot sunny days say

Summertime is here.

 

Flowers grow tall,
Budding forth anew.

Planted seeds come to call,

Blooming to life true.

 

Late evening rainbows

Arch a tortoise sky

Reaching unto the soul...

Awaiting Summertime.

"a tortoise sky"
very slowly moving clouds...the heat is an eccentric villain...
and this poem is making me wipe my brow of the sweat.
"marshmallow clouds"
I think I will start a bonfire.

Me too dear Melinda. I am waiting for the days of Summer.
"Flowers grow tall,
Budding forth anew.
Planted seeds come to call,
Blooming to life true"

Pleased you got a new one. What a pain though. That must have hit your pocket unexpectedly.
