Pictures of Summer

 

Leaves1

Summers last breath
a warm September day

Dappled leaves still
full on the trees

A hint of color to
come on cold Autumn air

I cling to the warmth
like a lover

Desperate for one more day

I memorize the green
the sound of flowing water
birds singing their summer song

I close my eyes to paint
the picture

In the depth of winter I will
close my eyes again
and feel the warmth
