Late Summer

It has been beautiful, late August, full moon
a million crickets following
a million fireflies in June,
a million May peepers. Immersed
in insect, amphibian cycles, I am a mammal, drugged,
crossing the road, car approaching
fast, unnoticed.

I would choose to die in late summer.
So that my wife would have autumn, intense,
to grieve by,
snowy bandages with which to bind the wound,
and spring to reawaken into.
Summer to remember that she's loved.

Awwww, what a very beautiful piece of writing you have created here my friend. Thank you for sharing. I am very impressed by your choice of words for this one. clap clap to you my friend.
I am a little irritated by the fact that 71 different people have clicked on his poem; however, not a single one of them even bothered to let you know what they think. That is bullshit and I apologize for them.
Take care my friend and I shall look forward to seeing more of your writing in the future.
