Close of Summer

Close of Summer

A Poem by M Lamont

This is technically written in the Japanese form called tanka but that s not one of the Genres.



Stroll the surf once more
One more wear of the sandals
Deflate the beach ball
Put away the bathing suits
Summer will return next year

I like the set-up and the short poem. Summer maybe gone. But at least the beach is there to give a place to rest and think. A excellent poem.
