Summer Weeps


Warm days huddle on the calendar gathering their strength
as summer weeps that it must say goodbye.
Ribbon water curls in blue question marks
asking autumn its time of arrival.
An exodus of feathered wings
waits for the call
to take flight
towards the
sun.

lovely. the concrete style adds a layer - as though we're looking at the landscape, appealing to the seasons, with birdlike familiarity, from the perspective of the flock.
