Summer Breeze ~ Tanka IX

Heeding Haiku With HA ~ 15 July 2015

Hey Blue Eyes it’s me
Loving memory’s frisson
We live forever
In the chords of summer breeze
And Polaroid summer sun

From today’s prompt:

Cirocumulus ~ Acrostic IX

Clear And Vision Unlimited

Iridescent sunbeams radiating

Reflections of precious gems

Opal and moonstone

Contained in a jewel box of sky

Under sapphire canopy

Morning light transformed

Undulating with each invisible breeze

Like a whisper of cerulean silk

Upon Nephele’s milky breast

Sweet summer sky

Muse II – Summer Nostalgia

An oldie…

Sweet funny Bear, I’m missing you like crazy today
Not too sure about the why but the feeling won’t go away

Maybe it’s the weather now, so hot and brilliant sun
Like summer days we spent together when we were young

Maybe it’s the summer nights, no air to dry the sweat
Our bodies making one of two, as close as we could get

Maybe it’s the way the sunshine’s beaming off the lake
Illuminates the boy in you, my heart does a double take

Maybe the sun and breeze have just woven a magic spell
Almost feel your beard against my lips… I remember so well

Maybe it’s that to see you smile still means so much to me
And makes the time without you seem just a bit lonely

Yes, I know our lives are separate now but you need to know it’s true
The best summer days and nights were the ones I had with you

You and Me Then
 

Summer Rain ~ Cinquain II

Listen
Quiet trickling
A calming sussurance
Accompaniment to sweet bird song
Hush now…

Litha Approaches ~ Cinquain I

Solstice
Evening descends
Dusky shadows lengthen
Summer’s longest day pales into
Twilight
