Summer's Embrace

dragonflies dart about over the pond
eyes always focused on what lies beyond
kingfishers watch for fish swimming by...
a humid morning, a hazy sky -

bumblebees buzzing from flower to flower
gathering pollen for the sweet power
to fly, to hover, move backwards and flee
from what startles a bumblebee -

butterflies flutter, wind in the leaves
sounds of creation as stoically trees
in humid and sultry summer's embrace
bring a sense of forever into this place...

poppies and lupins burst into flower
Sun worshipping beauty hour after hour
buttercups everywhere yellow and bright
awaiting the humid and sultry night -

sunset comes slowly Sun slips behind
mountains on the island every time
nightfall's golden promise fades away...
a sultry evening end to the day -
