Summer spirits

shining solstice
soon September
summer spirits sigh softly

je me souviens

growth burgeoning abundance
giving falling collecting
warm memories
to be savoured
in the time of decline

Thanks to The Mag

I love the soft summer spirits and the anticipation of fall you played with in your poem, DCW. The images dance. Thank you for sharing this wonderful work. =D
