white linens billow
against a green
backdrop
flowers bounce
swaying- -
their upturned faces
bright paint splotches
glowing in golden sun- -
children smile
in shades of melon
and sun fire red
glowing
through blue
water- -

Summer smiles
through the sorrow
in your eyes- -
searching for
your own piece
of peace within,
without speaking
your wishes or wants
coming in
and stepping out
of loss- -summer
isn’t really cold- -
hold on to that

I’ll give you
moonlight  blue butterflies
and okra blossom kisses- -
little summer blessing smiles- -
dawning a new fire
to sparkle your eyes- -
patchwork pieces
of peace for you
in the shifting
of long days
running
through summer
searching.

 
 
Inspired by the Peter Gaberiel song “In Your Eyes”, one of the 1980’s goodies.
