Summer Reverie

A margarita!

That’s what I want:

To lounge poolside

Watching the light

Blend the sky–

Cotton candy pink

Spiked with

Mandarin orange

And a splash of purple.

Clouds on the rim.

Then stars.

  1. you can’t put Cotton Candy Pink and “clouds on the rim” (what a fantastic line!) in 33 words and not have me smiling.

    this was the perfect summer LIBATION. πŸ™‚

  2. beautiful. I miss those sunsets – here in Alaska the sun does not set until way after I am abed and it rises before I do no matter how early I get up. πŸ™‚ Your piece took me back to my childhood summers. Thanks.

    1. Oooohhh. That would be tough. I visited Anchorage a couple of times for work but it was during the fall/ winter so I didn’t witness those long days. How do you do it?

  3. Everything was calming and relaxing about this poem. Loved it from start to finish. The visual imagery was spot-on!!!

    1. Oh, I will! I read every single entry from earlier in the week… these are much quicker to get through. No wonder you only ask for 33 words πŸ˜‰

Say Anything. Anything at all.
