If Summer Could Go On Forever

sunflowers would
shine their cheerful light
through winter’s dark night

Essential Elements

steel heron
waits by stone bowl
filled with rain

Still Jumping

a merry band
of cheerfulness
still jumping mid-summer

Garden Party

hollyhock corsage
every one is invited
to summer’s dance

The Frog Overseer

from his porch perch
summer’s bloom

Cows In The Pasture

however far away
place holders
for a summer’s day

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

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

of clouds
celebrates summer
