Highlights

I think of you more when you are gone
the Tennessee breeze caressing your shoulders
playfully tossing the highlight in your hair
strawberry and blond
now and then the glint of silvery grey
just to say I know
You know that youth is fleeting
that seasons pass
that wisdom’s value is transcendent
without it love and trust
are only desire and tolerance
a fragile bond indeed
as delicate as the highlights
in this august sun

Searching high and low no matter where i go it always seems the same: shades of grey. Or, was that gray?

    I like the change of air, just how I like the change of seasons and how life and people change to adapt for it. The snow, the coats, the boots, shorter days and longer nights, then the blossom, followed by the sun- flip-flops, beaches and dining alfresco style. A change seen nearly in all aspects of life… I love it.

    A real summer poem. There is a change in the air I think everyone is feeling it. Everything will be golden soon and we will wonder what happened to summer.. Hope you enjoyed yours.. Hugs Carrie

    Such a lovely poem. It\’s so true that without wisdom, love and trust aren\’t much. Have a good weekend.
