Haiku: Love Is Like A Summer Bloom...

"I know I am but summer to your heart, and not the full four seasons of the year.” Edna St. Vincent Millay

When love comes calling,
Bright, warm, full of hope and joy
Like a summer bloom...

The early bird sings,
Sweet, lyrical, a love dirge
Ripe, like bleeding hearts...

When love calls your name
Unfurl your petals and bloom
Her call is fleeting!

“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.” Rabindranath Tagore

Love opens petals,
Each, gently kissed by sunrise
At dusk, they embrace...

When love comes knocking
Lush, fragrant, like morning dew
Tell love, we're ready...

  1. Great Poem! I did poetry extensively in High School. The Summertime Imagery is can relate to is " True Love is like waiting for the ice-cream man on a hot summer day .. it takes patience" :-)

  2. Elizabeth when I was single, all I think about is how can I spend my summer at the beach with my friends having fun all day and all night long. Now that I have my own family, when summer comes to mind, water and sand are still in the picture but more of family-oriented activities. They do not necessarily have to be fancy activities but as long as we spend it as a unit and we create happy memories, it's the perfect summer for me.

  3. Love is like summer indeed since it comes with a ray of sunshine that brightens each minute.

  22. Lovely poetry. My associations of summer are of the water. When I was a child we were at the ocean every day. Flowers remind of spring and the birth of new things, like the start of a new love.
