Summer Splendor


Sunshine embraces God’s creation
carpets of green, canopies of shade
palettes of red, yellow, pink, and blue
roses, hibiscus, and lavenders

Morning dew kisses velvet petals
shimmering blades of grass and ivies
soft breezes carry heady perfumes
gardenias, roses, orange blossoms

Butterflies with fragile wings alight
on calla lilies and sweet williams
bumblebees, humming birds, honey bees
drink in sweet nectar from begonias

Robins build nests babies fly away
Redheaded woodpeckers tap a tune
meadowlarks and mockingbirds singing
joyful tunes, lilts to our Creator

Hush, a distant rumble, skies darken
Gusts, then robust winds blast all nature
flashes of lightning claps of thunder
showers saturate, all thirsts are quenched

Stillness, dark clouds leave, sunshine bursts forth
flora and fauna are glistening
bedecked in diamonds and glitter
bird-egg blue skies boast a bright rainbow

Sleeping lakes reflect back the hot sun
rustling streams, tinkling springs meander
through wooded terrains and grassy banks
strewn with wildflowers green leafy ferns

Bountiful fields of clover and grains
tall stalks with silky heads look upward
bathed in sunshine waving in the breeze
proud orchards display fruity bouquets

Lowing cows, bleating sheep in pastures
horses grazing in meadows with young
deer and fawns drinking from crystal creeks
gaggles of geese swimming in cool ponds

Twilight beckons, lightening bugs aglow
echoes of katydids and night owls
crickets, cicadas, frogs on the pond
golden moonbeams shadows on the lawn

Twinkling orbs are close enough to touch
signals of hope, promises to come
Gods blanket of love and protection
covers those who place their trust in Him


(“It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made... summer.” Psalms 73:17 NIV).

Beautifully illustrated! You made me want to lie down and have a nap amidst all those flowers and bees and trees. Great vocabulary and thoughts; thank you for a splendid read.

This is very poetic and describes summer perfectly. Very good job!
