End of Season

I shall miss my lovely sunflower bed
Thank you for my days of yellow splendour
Where atop red patio bricks
In rocking chair of natural wicker 
Lyrics of trickling fountain melodies
Splashed near petals of dotted chocolate kisses
Oh to breathe in deeply ere out slowly
A sad good-bye forth seasons of Fall and Winter,
Gleeful anticipation to sense God’s hint of Spring
Not long to seek emerald green in clay of red
Peeking buds bloom finally bursting forth
Gifts of happiness have come yet again
From far above for me to share and love
Until then, sleep well my yellow friends

  1. gosh, your photos and words were just perfect – and I share in the sentiment as things are winding down – although here in VA we will have blooms into October – usually – great poem!


    • Truly, kind thanks to you. I still feel like I’m stepping out on a ledge with my poetry. You, together with all of my WordPress family give me more confidence with every poem I write, it seems. Blessings.


    • Sue, it is so nice to hear from you! I have no idea where summer went. Almost gone for good, it seems! I truly thank you for your time in reading and commenting. I know how busy we all are, and your support means much to me. Blessings to you.

      • Today we had the Sun although a little chilly.. Time I think is flying away with us all .. I have not been on WP as often, but I am trying to catch up with many, .. Like wise also… Take care of you and your lovely family.. Enjoy the Autumn Gold! 🙂


    • Thank you for your visit, for your time and such kind comment. My sunflower bed is the first thing I ‘see’ each and every morning. Always a cheerful “Hello” to me. Time to say, “Good-bye.” 😦


  2. The sunflowers just have their ‘Black Eyed Susan’s’ left behind! I bet their towering Sunflower sisters hated to part with them! This was a beautifully written ode to the passing of summer time flowers! I love chrysanthemums and will look forward to poinsettias, too!


    • Cheers to you, Laurie. Yes, even the last of mine have now dwindled to little ‘nothings.’ I’m so far behind here in my blog…a grand-daughter’s birthday yesterday and a son getting married this weekend. Whew…..Missing you and everyone at WordPress. 🙂


  3. Your poem is bustling with energy and optimism – so much that if I take a print out of it and keep it with me, I may be able to fast forward the gloominess of the inevitable winter, in the hope that the much awaited spring will be as healing as the purity of your thoughts is.

    “Lyrics of trickling fountain melodies” is my favorite line, because truth must be told sometimes that lyrics ‘have’ melodies and fountain ‘also’ trickles. In the absence of these beautiful words, we are fast forwarding our lives – which though is justified in our earnestly expecting a sooner spring.


    • Oh, thank you so much, Mahesh. You words have made my day, such a kind compliment to me. I dread winter too, and may pocket my dear sunflowers as you suggest until springing forth into the next. The way you write should truly be put into pages…a book to share for all of us here? 🙂


  4. A beautiful tribute to the passing of a colourful season Kim.
    Your sunflowers will return and bring beauty and joy to your world.
    No one can not look at a sunflower without smiling.
    Emu aka Ian
