Summer Gladness

As the bees buzz

And snakes crawl

Dragging summer

Grass stands tall…

Crickets sing

When birds lay sleep

Within the season

The soul does keep-

For life lives

In all living things

So many verses

Beyond the strings…

Inches from slumber-

Or living again

Live the now

Before the Then.

Summer Reality

Do you know the old saying?

Can’t see the forest for the trees?

In this case it’s because it has been a while

Since I have shaved above the knees.
The summer brings things to life-

And requires less clothing too-

But I do not mind the forest-

So dear public… This service is for you.
So here is to longer showers –

And realizing how small the water heater is.

Please remember to wear sunglasses –

Because the white glow takes time to dim.
