August

waterlogged streets, cloudy skies
heavy downpour, clothes won’t dry

yet, drop in temperature
a tremendous relief
heat is such an alienator

my birthday’s just passed by
but Leo month keeps me high

will this year be worse or better
or between the years
just another connector?

A time to reflect, a time to dream
maybe it’s a chuckle or a scream

I think of death a lot more often
rethink all that’s gone -leaving
my stance hardened or softened

Greenery refreshes vision again
Dreams pour, thoughts rain…

  1. This is absolutely gorgeous writing here, Reena! I especially resonate with; “will this year be worse or better or between the years just another connector?” Belated birthday wishes to you! Thank you so much for adding your voice to the prompt 💖💖
