A sea of gold set ablaze in the hot sun.
I squint to watch a monarch dance with a bee,
Adrift on the sultry breeze.
As it caresses my skin and sets my soul on fire,
I am lost in the lazy hum of the garden.
All life here has succumbed to this moment-
There is no other as there will never be again.

This is the last series of summer poems I wrote in 2012 and 2013 to celebrate summer. This poem was a memory of a summer day watching the pollinators play on the breeze and sip nectar under the golden sun.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.
If you enjoy reading this blog, I welcome you to share it with others. I enjoy spreading the blog love, and I appreciate all who come and read my blogs.
Special Note: The pictures in this post are of a monarch butterfly drinking in the last golden nectar of summer before flying south for the winter following those summer breezes.
I leave you with a few additional words about Summer Breezes. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
