Summer Symphony

Updated on June 19, 2013

Dusk reveals her magic

After evening storms pass

When coolness hangs in the air

And gentle breezes full of rich, earthy smells

Caress the sense of all who breathe

Women sit on front porches

Some in painted rocking chairs

Others sway in wooden swings

They shell peas to pass the time

Nimble fingers tear through purple and green shells

Creating a cadence of tiny pings

As round seeds connect with glass

In the distance crickets chirp and frogs groan

Lifting song from grass and moss covered ponds

The women listen daring not to speak

Least they disturb the sounds of perfection

From brilliant summer symphony.
