Summer's Kiss

Write me a summer song
plant here a warming kiss
seed it in these furrows long
in sunsets' languid dip.

Sing lyrics to my buried soul
which lives beneath
in numbing receded cold.

Sing to me underground
another season's bloom.
See my soul steeled against
against this dying cold abyss.

I shall not die in winter's cold
nor miss this year's summer's kiss
I'll bloom my soul's flower
in garden green-
my petals high sky'ed-
flower flights and butterflies
star dust destines;
all my hopes mingled.

Plant me here then
on ready cheek
just one summer's kiss,
my furrow to bloom
my soul 'neath
will rise fully watered
flowers fully bloomed;

Now start in me another
Hope's Season
even beneath
my winter's frozen
And here regard
Winter's frozen bloom
kissed by your summer lips
your's planted
upon mine.

Touching amour of seasons come seasons lost. Warm's my frozen soul.

Lonnie, here's hoping your summer star-kissed dreams come true. An avid star-watcher, I always love a nod to the beauty above, so thank you Lonnie for taking me back there again.

Nice poem here, Lonnie. Obviously written by someone who grew up in myself. Kissed those winters good-bye 18 years ago.
