Enter Summer

I realize summer is well on its way for 2014 and is not just now making her appearance. However, where I live in the mountains above Hesperus CO we have been experiencing very cool days because, (blessing of all blessings), it has been raining, and summer as we usually think of her, had not made an appearance until today! In her honor, then, I offer this poem to remind us that summers are usually a little longer, and yes though we have enjoyed the cool days, we are happy to see her again because she is a vital part of our lives.

Enter Summer

Summer burst slowly
About me today
Her edges a tapestry of green
Forgoing the heat
Of her coming days
She seemed most willing to please.
Her balmy breezes
Ruffled my hair
And kissed my sun-warmed skin
And I basked in fragrances
Clean and sweet as I listened
To birdlings sing.
I gazed then in awe
At fluttering leaves
And marveled at things unseen
A God who designs
And provides such things
At the close of a snowy spring.
