Midsummer Days


a hammock gently sways // on a warm midsummer day

under cover of huge twin maples // chores are in the wind

on the edge of dreams // open book lays splayed

the trickle of the creek // nature’s songs center stage

the rustle of maple leaves // transport to dreams

In passing winds // leaves set a twitter

birds singing an ongoing melody // rides the summer winds

the sounds of nature // clear summer skies

dappled sunlight // warmth dance on my eyes

sprinkling daydreams // weaving memories

on long summer days // of the times spent in a gentle sway

I first learned about Cleave Poems over at JaneDoughertyWrites.com where she writes:

“A cleave poem is in two halves, two separate poems, one on the left, one on the right, but that make a single poem when you read them together. It sounds tricky…and it is.

BUT there are no rhymes, no rhythms and no set length..”
