Summer Poems

Summer is Here...

Summer is here
Kissin' us with heat
From head to toe
Givin' us earthly bliss
With a hot solstice kiss

Smilin' seaside shorelines
Embrace soakin' sunbathers
Drinkin' golden sassafras
Straight from the sun
Through straws of glass

Watermelon's a drippin'
Under trees alive
Throwin' down green
At our 3rd eye
Wakin' our dreams

Butterflies a flutterin'
Under mellifluous skies
Birds a chirpin' out tunes
Throwin' down melodies
Quenchin' our honeyd souls

Sunflowers a trippin'
Feet are dancin' wild
In whimsical fields
Hands are reachin' evermore
Towards taffy blue skies

Endless rainbows stretchin'
Spinnin' psychedelic colors
That hypnotize our heads
With floral hallucinations
Of the Gaian kind

Summer is here
Rollin' out endless fun
For peeps to enjoy
On endless green lands
Stretchin' onto golden sands

Oh, Tiger Lily...

Oh, Tiger Lily
With beautiful lithe petals
Petals that curl out from North to South
Petals that are long with visual delight
Petals that dance inside adagio breezes

Oh, Tiger Lily
With delicate phallic tendrils
Tendrils that fountain out from East to West
Tendrils that exude aphrodisiacal fragrances
Tendrils that pull us into your lilic presence

Oh, Tiger Lily
Of all earth's exquisite flowers
I do so love you the very best
'Cause you are exotic and wild
Mother Nature's erotic child

Blue Heron's Calm...

Inside this...

cherished green haven
known to us as Blue Heron
where nature's preserved

Beneath a...

canopy of trees
where songbirds do sing sweetly
summer's melody

While above...

the sun peaks through the
between of trees emptiness
that whispers silence

If we...

quiet our mind's thoughts
we can hear the true beauty
that Gaia speaks through

To us...

in nature's green grove
where magical faeries dwell
spreading pixie dust

Along with...

rainbow butterflies
that flutter in and around
the lithesome flowers

That echo...

Pan and Gaia's voice
all the way to Summerland
on the gentle winds

That blow...

us onto our paths
where our souls can find peace in
this placid grove's calm

Under the...

leaves spiraling down
falling, spinning to the ground
where silence is found
