Poem of the week Summertime Winds

LEAF chattering

blossom scattering

branch bending

flower swaying:

summer wind dancing down the lane.

Gusting, gasping

Gathering leaves

gathering petals;

eddies of debris

swirling their dust

Coughing, sneezing


staking, tying

[prize-planting dying;

gardeners’ despair.

Summertime wind gathering strength

Wreaking itws havoc down the lane!
