Such sparkling light on the Aegean,
liquid gold for tired treasure seekers.
On the patio petals, later in the day,
the light is softer, covering them in
a cozy blanket, just before bedtime.
For, the icy moon is hiding between the burnt
maple leaves - victims of a seasonal crime,
and one a suspicious suspect won't confess to!
Only their reflection, shimmering inside a pool
of cool hydration, seems to rejuvenate the
scorched and seared surface of the leafy greens,
while the flaming red zinnias
withstand such blazing blows,
radiating their own bold beams
of light, as the day begins to doze.
Thanks for visiting and
