Patricia Kelley (March 11 1957 / Oklahoma)
Summer’s bright beautiful hues
Softly floating pillowing cotton white clouds
Clear glistening transparent diamond drops morning’s fresh kissed dews
Flowers of bright vibrant colors of yellow, pink, purple, red and orange dancing in mulch crowded, secluded crowds
Grass softly painted upon a canvas of different shades of bright and dark green hues
Feeling their sinking bare feet from their tossed canvas laced shoes
With the summer’s winds pushing them higher and higher climbing with the wind kissing their toes.
With thoughts of schooldays and schoolbooks pass at last the fresh taste of summer on their lips.
They embrace summer’s sun kissed arms flirting with her charms.
Of more days of swimming,
More days of playing,
Beneath summer’s sun
