GARDEN PARTY: Evening Edition

Memorial Day 2013


the summer social season

  begins today

officially launched

  with barbecue grill

    potato salad

a few friends




the cliches of modern angst

sparkle and tumble

in the gentle dusk

like the ice cubes

  in our glasses


full summer essence

politely waits

in the small tight fists

  of tomato blossoms

yet to hang fully ripened

  on vines of longing

creeping beneath

  our lawn chairs


garden fairies

  tiptoe past

one finger to the lips
