Tora Estep



August by Kathleen Jordan

Inspiration piece

These lingering beach days
Sun bathing the body caressing the skin and
Kissing the limbs
grow short
As the perfume of summer, of brightly colored melons and peppers
Willows nodding in the gentle breezes whisper
not long now
Until the autumn slinks into the bowing out summer
Leaves tearfully fall and pillow the softened ground
Soon to turn hard as the chill settles on land like a smothering fog
Setting sun no longer smiles on the sea
But warns with the chilled wave and the darkened early sky
Lament. Another summer slips away from us
Only to be remembered with the donning of clothes heavy
After summer’s freedom.
