Summer’s Gala

Sweetened
Milk with
Pineapples
Moisten the
Jug, baked
Bread, dry
Dates in
Honey stream
Pot roast
Candy apples
Prepared for
Master’s gala
As summer
Alas begins
Carriage cars
Now approach
Men in boot
Hose, women
In finest silks
Arrive to talk
Endlessly of
Zeroes and ones
And what not
As they party
I’ve kept silent
My thoughts
Heated like
Arriving summer
I’m left alone
To tend to
Plants in back
Garden, still
Pondering deep
Of his secret
Kisses

They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
