Pulse of July
Pulse of July’s languid hours:
blueberries ripening to deep purple,
lilies aligned in colorful arrays.
Ivory egrets,with graceful steps,
scout among green marsh grasses
that bend in warmer winds.
Heat and humidity have arrived –
energy is lost to move one muscle.
When winter’s blast whitens land
regrets will arise for passing
of these pleasant summer days.
The Moon Waits
The One Night
Stars shake shiny dust
on path to rendezvous
which rises from leafy glade,
passes nebula’s smoky gases
that echo tall thunderheads,
travels beyond the black holes,
crosses the Silver River
for their annual meeting,
their one night of bliss.
Lainie will exhibit paintings and read her poetry at this event:
