Stay ~ a nonet

It seems as though you’re still summer

sunshining your way past the din

of Time, tattooing yourself

on my wild wanton skin

locking forever

all our whatifs

as though you

may still

stay

  1. And in California, we are ready for summer to leave. Having grown up in the Midwest, however, I feel the emotion behind your poem, ss. I loved the imagery of these three lines, especially your use of a noun as a verb.

    1. You have such a lovely way with words ☺️ Thank you so much for writing in. Anything that’s leaving…we want to cherish…even if it’s just for a little while longer
