No more the Summer

I asked for banners on the sky
For words to jag and scrawl intent
My eyes were blind to details loud
To smaller notes of what you meant

The empty sun that fills the west
Leaves only low light for my eyes
You gave enough to stay the course
With breathspace only as the prize

The pain of loss is chill as bone
And nothing fills the place you left
I am the one who took the most
And gave no peace, no careful rest

So heavy heart, you’ll pay the price
And know the petals falling thin
From roses left in summer’s heat
To dry, as autumn draws me in.

So actions speak aloud the words
For now I look; no hope to find
And here the story ends, untold
With only me, my selfish mind.

      Thank you, so much. It’s been an interesting learning curve this year. I couldn’t find any other way to articulate it.

    HELLO RACHAEL.

    BEAUTIFUL POEM. I LOVE HOW YOU RELATE HERE THE END OF A SEASON WITH A SENSE OF LOSS …

    WORTH NOTING THAT YOU HAVE CHOOSEN SUMMER AS THE SEASON OF REGRETS & SORROW AND NOT AUTUMN OR WINTER…

    THAT KEEPS YOUR POEM SAFE FROM COMMON PLACES & TRITE POETIC IMAGES.

    CONGRATULATIONS ON HOW YOU MANAGE WORDS NO MATTER WHICH LITERARY GENRE IS INVOLVED….

    SENDING YOU LOVE & WISHING YOU A GREAT WEEK AHEAD;

    AQUILEANA 😉

    I admire how you weave in the sensations of heat, dryness, and even chill when conjuring the trials of the summer. Unfortunately, I sense no anticipation of relief with the coming autumn. I sincerely hope that won’t be the case.

    A lovely, reflective, emotional poem.

      Well, the other night when I wrote it, I certainly wasn’t in a good place. There was no light to be seen for me. But I’ve had a few days reflection, and a kaleidoscopic shift in perspective. I’m a lot stronger than I thought I was.
      All things move towards their end, eventually. x
