Old Structures Reminisce


behind the arbor and gazebo
berries blush recalling
memories of summer kisses

Too Soon To Say Goodbye


like summer
we linger
by the fencepost

At Summer’s Edge


down by the river
the susans and goldenrod
commune

Not Done Yet


sweet September
unwilling to let
summer’s party fade away

Watching The Clouds Parade


this rightful place
at river’s edge
near summer’s end

Meadow Surf


swells of color
summer’s current
these flowering wave sets

Summer’s Best Friend


take shelter
in the sweet shade
of the dear old tree

The Garden At Noon


from the shade
I take a long drink
of her colors

Celestial Pageantry


parade
of clouds
celebrates summer

The Garden Bench


in morning shade
watching
a summer day unfold

Strawberries


red, ripe, juicy
summer hauntings
of winter’s slow end

Taking Turns


summer lingers
in the field
autumn at the fencepost

Soft Saunter Of Colors


late summer
climbed the hill
making way for autumn

Ordinary Hero


summer stalwart
holding up the sky
fending off fall
