As you all know, I am thrilled with how the End of Summer Poetry Contest concluded and to keep the fun going, I’ve decided to continue sharing some of my favorite submissions.
(These do not come in any specific order or ranking.)
Here we go!
From Christine Bolton, we have “Senses of Summer”
“The scent of gardenias
Floating on late afternoon air
Sweetly fragrant and tender
Nothing can compare
Spanish Moss hanging in dreadlocks . . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
From The Feeling Spleen, we have “Different Shades of Sunshine”
“When did you know it was
to come home?”
When I didn’t just want the sun to bounce off my
but to seep all the way . . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
From Dorinda Duclos, we have “Firelight Fizzles”
“The fire burned, ever so slowly
We watched, as flames grew high
Each stick thrown into the pile
Seemed to let out a hideous cry
As the fiery mass engulfed it . . . ” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
From the Darkest Fairy Tale, we have “Moments”
“The sun sets
After a burning day,
Admiring the last glimpse
Of its Intoxicating rays.
As music dances. . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
From Ethan D Eagar, we have “Warming Breeze”
“Tension sways a load
Nigh the old window
Deftly gripping with unease
Shy dew drops hold taut
Another year’s wash. . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
