This is the first poem for Poetic Bloomings Poem-a-day Chapbook Prompt .
Prompt taken from the song Summer Breeze.
Happy July 1st! And Happy Canada Day to those of us in this 'True North Strong and Free'.
For all the expectations that I have from you
You always surprise me with new ways to
Showcase the old
And I know I will never tire of being on the lookout
For fresh arrangements of
The world is filled with kindred spirits
But the trick and the joy
Is discovering them
As long as I live I will never grow weary
Of summer days
Preserved in poem
Darling, come, lets pulls our green-grass chairs
Out to the wide-open
And wait to see what old, new arrangements
We never can tell
The flower bouquets we have picked then strewn
To the floor of time’s summer-day
Makes one glad to be alive where June
Has a way of making winter
Worth it all
