Summer Jest by Azalea Kermalli

October 24th, 2013

summer fading

this summer, a time of small loves

hot wells,  country stuff, black horsehair

no shadow withers or sunlight fades

i hold my breath with you.

 

a sideways glance, with glimpy eyes

long, long legs and witty feet,

green stars shine the path of wings

i hold you in my arms.

 

flaring and fitful, hot breeze of sweet

glowing scarlet and golden cinders,

the radiance blooms and seems to breathe

i look through mirrors at you.

 

across the old carpet floor, a hedgehog

flicks and stares,

my singing rises, you roar and punch

i kneel, eyes down, back, toes bare.

 

leaves rock from side to side on silk

the sky throws clouds like cannonballs,

down where the sea boils great fish

i fold my hair for you.

 

perfumed paper and silver women

this heat plays mischief on me,

two brass bright balls, i juggle and throw

my laughing mouth swallows sky falls.

  5. Evie G. says:

    There are moments during the day when one just wants to read to remove themselves from reality, from all that is good and bad. Poetry does this for many of us, especially me. A good poem leaves you wanting to dream of another reality, world and person. This is exactly what my day needed to lift me up. Cannot wait to read more. Very proud of you Azalea
