Magpie Tale-Songs of The Summer






There are two lyrics
About summer,
One hangs in space,
Obligated by the sun
And the sound of ocean waves,
Obscured under the shades of green cliffs;
The other one is abstract,
Kept alive by spirits
And the bubbles of your dreams,
Deflected from the reality
of conflicts and grieves.
Thoughts linger in minds,
Fish swim in waters,
Pumpkins ripen on vines,
and the direction of the wind matters
Because it defines your beliefs.
The images of the Fall season mark a future
In nature
That spans the gap between the unknown
And the known.
It is late August,
Don't dwell in the bathtub for too long,
Listen to your favorite summer song
Before it is completely gone!

Brigid said...

You are so right, time to get out of the tub and embrace summer, lovely magpie.

Great Jingle...yes we must grab these last days of summer....blessings...bkm

Linda said...

Written like a true lover of summer. I can feel the joy of summer, and the sadness in knowing it fades away into fall.

Vicki Lane said...

Ah, the bubbles of your dreams... so fleeting!

Nice Magpie, Jingle!

Tattered and Lost said...

This really makes me wish we'd had a summer this year instead of crops coming in late while leaves are already turning. Yes, perhaps a nice soak will make me forget the weather is turned upside down. August is finally June but too late to matter.

Abhilasha-The Desire said...
