The pallet of reds, yellows, and oranges.
Reds I adore and treasure.
Sunlight begins to become foreign,
Yet continues her fight to be pleasured.
The air carries a calmness.
The rustle of nature’s wind chime
on the golden leaves is flawless.
Soothes me into the autumnal meantime.
The hues are reminiscent of the eternal goodnight,
Yet enticing and bring me delight.
Warm weather haunts us
Crisp cool air is desired
Welcome autumn breath
Words are powerful.
They make you cry and laugh.
I love their dual intent.
Today we remember.
An unfortunate history we mourn.
We must never forget
The sacrifices forced on our nation’s pride.
May we remain strengthened and united.
Every year that passes,
We mightily must flourish.
In the end, we will defeat our enemies.
My view is muted to behold the black and white of late summer.
No white exists; green is the black.
Bright summer colors fall between the contrast of the summer’s eternal green.
No whites are detected, only a pop of pale pink, rich purple, and deep yellow.
The warm breeze has a cool shadow that whispers, “Autumn is on its way.”
The winds replaced the jovial children and perpetual waves.
A wind chime clangs to break through the strong breeze’s secrets.
A few leaves fall and dance across my path foreshadowing what is near.
School is starting and it’s again time to say farewell.
We await our friend all year.
The time passes so quickly as a marvel.
Thank you for our adventures, dear.
We enjoyed the sunshine, soft sand, and cool waves.
We slept all morning and traveled long days.
The crack of the bat sent cheers and shockwaves.
It was hard to detect weekends or Mondays.
Adieu cherished friend.
We anticipate our reunion next June.
Our yearly tradition
A summer family vacation
The distance between us reduced
We share games with laughter induced
The BBQ fills our bellies
While the memories fill our hearts
The desert heats don’t stifle our fun:
Games, the pool, the laughter can’t be outdone
Yet our bittersweet departures must end our time together
Until next summer vacation.
