Happy Poetry Friday!
I’m in with a quick acrostic poem for our changing season and Summer’s end…
And a Poem Swap poem and art that I sent to Iphigene Daradar earlier this summer.
Sunflowers squeeze out profuse buds and then some…
Underneath their golden-crown canopy grow
multiple green peppers, tomatoes and okra prepping for harvest—
Milkweed produces more and more seedpods for
entry next spring… While zinnias razzle-dazzle and
rave on in tertiary pinks, soft tangerine’s, and lavender lilacs, third
season asparagus’ twice its size, and
entwined morning glory vines envelop everywhere.
Nary a ruby-throated hummingbird appears as summer
daylight ebbs away and ushers in autumn.
