As you all know, I was amazed 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 Sarah Al-Haddad, we have “Ocean”
From Walt’s Writings, we have “A Summer Love Haiku”
“They met on the beach
From Taylor Finn, we have “
“The Summer flickers into the year with lingering regrets;
A medley of melted marshmallows and perfume laced bug sprays.
It’s not a storm like the Spring, raging in, forcing growth and change, no.
Summer stumbles with no direction, as if lost in all this sunlight. . .”
From The Woman, we have “Summer of Darkness”
“. . . Sand and smiles with the
Saucy *shush* of the silver waves
Life and laughter lighting up
Little gatherings of lovers
The season of death
Turning light to dark
Smoke blocking out. . .”
From Jason A. Muckley, we have “New Season”
“Summer is ending
The heat recedes
School buses roaming
And school bells ring
Local pools close their doors
Camps and cabins fall silent. . .” (Finish Reading and Click Here!)
