Blue Moon

Blue for sadness, that Summer has left

andĀ her whispers reach out to us, to tell us that she has gone,

gone to an unreachable place

Blue for Icy Wind that will move in and bite and snap at your heels

Blue for a silent happiness thatĀ Autumn has arrived,

that we are no longer in Summer’s trance

Blue moon as Mother Nature’s gift for this season shift

This Day Whispers Summer…

this day whispers summer

in lots of little ways…

like how the butterfly flits from

flower to flower

and a warm morning sun

heats the trampoline

The fresh smell of cut grass

comes sharply

the air is sticky with laziness

and a hint of wonder

Today whispers summer

quietly, in all the little ways….
