Spring turns to summer, Night turns to day.
And all about me the garden does play.
Bees fill their pockets, young birds take first flight-
Me, I’m staring up into the sky so bright.
Do I climb, do I soar,
Do I lay in the grass once more?
Soft fragrances wafting slow down my day,
As I contemplate the clouds, and rest from my play.
Whether splashing in water, or picking berries ripe-
There is always time to savor sweet summer delights!

Today is the Summer Solstice, and the changing of the seasons is upon us. I wrote this poem early last summer in July. I was recuperating from surgery, and had ample time to watch the seasons change before my eyes. On my garden blog, Wednesday, I will be featuring the wrap up of my meme, Seasonal Celebrations. There is still time to join in as we celebrate the coming of summer. You can read how to be part of the celebration here.
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 here are of various pollinators that were visiting my garden in early summer. They are the lifeblood of the garden and are responsible for the flowers blooming year after year, and veggies growing for a wonderful harvest.
I leave you with a few additional words about Summer Delights. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
