Excerpt

August

The apex of a summer's age,
this month of August glows along.
Before she turns her final page,
her heart bursts forth in throaty song.
While sleepy days hang close and long-
July has spent its sparkling pace,
and left behind its bright and strong
cascade of sunlight's beaming face.
The fullness of her sighs replace
the hot and breathless days gone by ,
and ease her through with quiet grace
along late summer's sapphire sky.

Anthem of August, mild and sweet,
shall sing a summer's soul complete.

Pearls Never Fade

She drags a suitcase,
day after day,
on a wheeled frame.
Scuffed work boots,
oddly out of place-
for her hair is bound up
in an elaborate French twist,
held in place
by a bejeweled clip.
Delicate earrings dangle.
A yellowed string
of genuine pearls
adorns her neck,
a bread tie holding
them together, tucked beneath
the collar of her faded coat.
Within the suitcase...
remnants
of a life gone by-
when strings of pearls
were whole and
milky white.
