sweet summer air
sunshine-dappled leaves
hang off withered, peeling bark

Michelangelo clouds
painted across a pristine blue canvas
stretched out to reach the horizon

where the flimsy ends of foliage,
held in place by obstinate roots,
meet pallid gray mist.

expansive houses line the streets
each with its own singularity
yet one and the same in their purpose.

tastefully modest displays of opulence
glistening cars and gleaming windows
belied by sweeping, lush farmland

linear rows of twisted vines
austere in their calculated precision
house grapes-to-be, wines-in-waiting

hidden fruit imbued with anticipation
for Autumn to come breezing by
with her palette of rich, earthy tones

displaced brown leaves, crimson apples
perched precariously upon feeble branches
so easily snapped by awaiting hands.

"My greatest trouble is getting the curtain up and down." - T.S. Eliot

This is great! I've read both your published poems, and they are brimming with VIVID description. It's definitely your strong point- VERY strong! Post more, please! And also- I know you probably won't get around to it, but- could you check a few of my poems, once they're published? Everyone else says this, too, I know, so you have to pick and choose, but if you happen to look at them, please comment. Thanks!
