The Sunday Muse 151 — love’s seasons


Surreal Artwork by Ronald Ong

Midsummer dance, endless green
that lasts forever;
hands tight as we twirl and laugh —
love’s perfect weather.
Hearts turn to winter,
extinguished flame; forever
now ashed wet sizzles.

Today’s offering is in the form of a sequidilla, a new form I learned on Thursday in dVerse.

Carrie is today’s host of The Sunday Muse.

    Yes, we go into it thinking it will last forever. Or, our lifetimes anyway.

    Nice poem, I like dabbling in forms. Summer romances are school kids norms, junior high through college. The cool when school starts back up.
