Summer Trees without leaves stripped bare like bikini bottoms at the beach. Summer is naked, unclothed and bare. Mosquitoes and flies arrive- bloodsuckers sucking the life out of innocent victims, burning on the beach of life. In Sync From chaos comes order. Dancers form a line- gliding in motion. Cicadas hum in the background. Flowing rhythm in sync as the night continues. Solar Lanterns Solar lanterns In the sky, Lights the way for all mankind. Night Warbler Night Warbler, your song continues Throughout the day, during the chaos and the fray. There is mayhem on every corner as you continue to sing, bringing a pleasant melody of comfort as my heavy eyelids close.
