Summer Afternoon

Posted by

Oh butterfly sailing ‘gainst the wind

Painted sails unfurled you fight your way

Yet why to go just now? Magnets make your mind

On air as thick as soup, Summer stirs the day

Straight ahead the mountain first then tomorrow

Noon will warm your feints, your colors bright will dry

Then up you draft a silky breeze, hitch your skirt and go

Gliding on your Soul, on lace designed by sky

She bobs her tail, antennae magic takes her South

Bobbing as the currents give her pass

Time is lost to distant worlds, so we hear by word of mouth

Will we see you again? Before we do the looking glass?

See the firefly lights? Signal you’re home success.

Once a boy’s dream, maybe again we’ll roam?

After electric and computers, unplug and call it progress,

You alone before the count of time, gave us Summer afternoon.

  1. i wish i knew wordpress even a smidgeon — it’s a struggle, but the pictures and perhaps a poem or two get across. Thanks for checking it out though
