ONE GREAT SUMMER OVER
BY RON UNRUH, © 2013
Unusual summer for this coast
atypical heat and thirsty soil.
Rain gear stored, we don’t complain
We rather sear and boil.
Forecasted rain is on its way
Damp and melancholy skies return
Donning macs and umbrellas
Dry our somber concern.
Winter months are sodden snowless
Incessant rains beat unending song
darkness staged with supper hour
black mornings for too long.
In cyclical rhythm seasons pass
From dormant seeds new vegetation
Everywhere the sounds of springtime
