Summer time fantasia

Sun beaming gumdrops onto the season's pixies of truth
Affectionately dancing to gingerly giggles upon my tingly skin
Cotton clouds of powder puff and gentle sweet breezes too
Tantalizingly chasing, as they merrily join up with these magical jinns

The lilacs and the wildflowers overwhelming with jealousy come in right on their cue
With aromas intoxicating the faeries fun, makes my head out of control spin
Within backward plunges into such soothing fresh pools
Of tall, cool, serene and blades of deep green …summer time fantasias

The renaissance of summer comes alive giving nature her due!
With the splendors and the spoils all trapped deep within
The skies that swirl and fountains which swath with pastel baby blues
And I am her willing accomplice never wanting of grandeurs to end

Jet stream buzzing ebonies of yellowish honey hues
Butterflies fluttering with a tip of the hat, but where a wink and a nod is meant
To pursuing visions flying out of the woodland and meadow afternoons
That bake upon the songbirds singing, serenading out until their hearts content

Evening melodies begin weaving around the loons and then the jitterbugs of this June
Why next July then August can I only visit these my dearest friends?
My backyard is a paradise, where eagles dare, but leave soon too
And the imps of mid season pack up their smiles and pick up their colors and wilds, to begin traveling off to where the summers never end

A fortyish native born all American man. Married twice and for the last time. I have four children; Three daughters and one son that are all over the age of eighteen. I also have two grandchildren; one three years old and one nine months old. Inspired by God, tragedy, life's experiences and then a fairy tale love. I never intentionally set out to write poetry, but "She" inspired me. "She" meaning the love of my life. That love is a passion that after thirteen years still grows stronger each and every day. It eventually had to be put into writing. As I wrote poetry to her, she encouraged me to approach other subjects. Doing so brought me to discover that poetry could wash away the bitter tastes of life (suicide, cancer, and divorce) that were still living like demons inside me. So when poetic therapy brought those impish fiends to a stalemate, I began to experiment more. Creating fictional characters and situations within my works. The support of this online community has inspired me even further to continue to hone my writing skills giving the readers the best that I can offer. Thanks to all you out there in Lulu land. more…
