Each week we examine a theme from a variety of points of view. This week’s theme is summer.
Today’s poem is a calendar poem about the savagery of nature beneath the slow, tranquil summer days.
I welcome comments on my poems at https://nicholasgordon.blogspot.com.
Summer lies luxuriant
Underneath a brutal sun.
Mayhem rules the tranquil scene,
Murder nothing can redeem,
Even as days slowly run,
Rich, well-favored, indolent.
