Summer Warmth

Summer Warmth
By Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris

Monday Poetry Prompt: SUMMER
Hosted by: Bartholomew Barker @ Living Poetry

Heat warms the chilled ground
spreading life awakening messages
to seeds laying dormant in the cold

Tiny sprouts leap forth shaking fragile heads of dirt and debris drinking in the liquid amber light

Trees long asleep in anticipation
of Spring’s sweet gentle nudge
unfurl leaves at Summer’s shove

Sunflower’s bursting in brilliant yellow match the analogous rays
of Summer’s resplendent sun

Worms begin to wiggle happily
deep inside ground frozen
by Winter’s arduous cold

Bees buzz, flies fly, gnats
do what gnats do to survive
living to bite another day

Reptilian creatures stretch
languidly soaking up old
Sol’s heat into disused muscles

Gardens bloom scents laden
with Mother Natures gift
of renewed color and magnificent life
