Summer Parade

The calliope of summer steams into town

Riding on the buzz of grasshoppers

Larking on the songs of robins, cardinals and blue jays.

Each child’s giggle and screech signals a concert

Of water sprays and cool pools of chlorine water.

Colors blaze along the lakeside in greens and reds and yellows

Like a floralfire of smells and textures.

The ripples of a leaping gill-breather lap up against the shore,

Marking time like the lines on a smiling face.

Spread out the orange blanket and sit here

So that I may see you close up  in the sunlight.
