Lavish Summer Inspirations
It is summer morning,
Armed with note pads, a pen
And a mind ready for take off,
I fasten my seatbelt
In a corner
underneath the bower of trees
At our home’s secret garden.
The dainty sunshine lights my face,
And the spider webs
On the twigs in front of me.
There’s really nothing in my head to write,
So I opened the windows of my mind
And the door of my heart
To weave glossy web of thoughts
To invite and capture
Lavish summer inspirations.
I listen to the rustling sounds
Of leaves as the winds blow
Through the garden’s green roofs ~
Their reflections move on the pads
Like mystic shadows tracing my writings,
Flirting with my thoughts.
Scents of ilang-ilang flowers wafting in the air.
Enticing incessant winged bystanders ~
Bees, butterflies, grasshoppers ~
They signal summer!
Random summer thoughts swarm my mind,
So I open the draperies of my heart
And tie the curtains apart
To welcome showers of summer inspirations
Bathing my fiery soul with cool emotions.
The birds’ repertoire are unusually merry.
They seem to rejoice with my company,
Or perhaps ’tis my heart I’m hearing
In tune with the beats of summer.
Outrageous blooms of bougainvilleas
Against the white wooden verandas
Festive contrasting colors
Treat the eyes with priceless raptures
Make one crave for summer flavors ~
Buko juice, fruit shake, iced cola
Water melon, pineapple, mangoes, papaya
Garnished with flowers of gumamela.
‘Tis the season for lavish summer fiesta!
The writers island invites us to write on the prompt this week: “Outrageous,” I thought of using the word in a more positive note. Please visit http://writersisland.wordpress.com to be inspired.
