Poet’s Corner – Summer

Summer envelops like a light cloth across ones shoulders
Waiting for the earth to bloom
Time is slow, even and now
and everything is out and present.
In quiet breaths of seasons going forward
Like a grand orchestra wide and clear
In an intricate string of notes.
Seeds thrown randomly take soil and prosper
Surprising in blooms and colors,
As front porches gleam with colored planters
And lush gardens line the streets where
An umbrella of greens lift upwards.
Colors appear brighter, pure and simple,
Warm spectrums, as light passes through them.
And nighttime voices pass through windows as light fades
Into dreaming.

Poem, “Summer” and Artwork, “Calyx and Pink,” by Marsha Solomon
