Only solitude and silence
as thoughts are swept
peacefully together
in the afternoon sun.
Dandelions spread across
hay fields, and grasshoppers
crying in the night.
Shadows fading across
the lake and ripples
caused by laughter.
Evenings last for days,
and vivid colors and
smells are remembered.

Why does darkness seize
light and hearts begin to
simmer and shatter?
Those cold winds,
unruly temperatures,
and rare instances of
morning radiance.
Constructive thoughts collapse
with the avalanche
that took your soul.
Shameful is Time who
cannot take back the
soulfulness of Summer.
