a bottle of summer


you prescribed me
walk by maple trees
slow dance by creek

look, the sun is holding
a ladle of soup
to ward off the blues

of autumn-
color the flowers
fiery red, marmalade gold- sum-

mer pulses, caught in your canvas-
scent of fresh geraniums 
with burn of your kiss

  1. I love love such a prescription... best bottle to have is that last sip of summer to last us through the darkness to come.

  2. I think you chose the brightest of the pictures, Grace, and you’ve captured the colours in your bottle of summer! That prescription would cure anything!

    I just wish I'd written that. What a great image. Love this poem, I'm sure I've said it before, but you write like an artist painting.

  4. a bottle of summer - I know you wish you could carry it around to take sips from during the winter. "scent of fresh geraniums with burn of your kiss"...what a lovely way to end this colorful poem.

  8. Wish I could still walk by the maples and slow dance by the creek, but I can still savor autumn as you've bottled it. Great write!

  14. Wouldn't that be a wondrous prescription to have in a bottle? But at least we have poetry and paintings--and dreams. Lovely images you create!
