Written for: Poems of Garden Gnomes
“And so, this week marks another “end of Summer”.
But before we pay full homage to the Fall season, let us have one last fling – one last dance with this Summer.
I ask that you think of those moments, play your favorite summer song and dance (in poetic terms) in tribute to the last days of summer. And to keep you on point, include the idea of a “dance” and be use to include the word somewhere in your poem or title thereof. Summer goes so quickly, it seems. Give her one last go-around!”
In glow of September moon
two silhouettes dance
on cooled grains of sand
like flickering orange
flames of a fireplace
that crackle in the face
of a white winter night.
(Come and join us gnomes in the garden, with Walt!)
