poem challenge: Summer
Peter Gustafson's picture


By Oona Osborne

Waking up to the smell of pancakes 

And the fresh taste of strawberry smoothies  

Then as we splash in the river Blue sky above 

 The day couldn't get any better

Could it  

As night falls the moon 

Shines through the towering trees

Ice Cream sundaes for dinner  

The tiny lights along the edge of the cabin

Framed our faces in pale yellow light

The dogs race around in the woods 

Weaving in between trees 

Jumping in and out of the river

Slowly we migrate back up to the cabin  

The peeling red paint looks brown in the dark

Everyone makes their way to the porch 

As the bats fly into the endless night sky
