Summer

I almost wrote “simmer” and realized that was not far wrong. Today’s topic is Summer. Two offerings:

MagicSWT pink

Hypnotized
by the taffy machine,
mamma’s hand yanking at mine,
but my eyes cannot leave the sight
until pulled away by the amount
of time (and money)
she is not willing to spend
and still
the turningSWT yellow
twining
twisting
tangle of
hot candy
flavored of banana
or cherry
or peppermint
or blackberry
lined up in bins full of
wax paper packagesSWT licorice
that one must
pull
and twist
to open
and taste (of course)
like magic.

Thermostat

In the winter it’s set to sixtythermostat
In the summer it’s set to eighty
To save costs, hubby thinks it nifty
In the winter it’s set to sixty
and I’m freezing indoors, sickness risky
July’s about sweating like crazy
In the winter it’s set to sixty
In the summer it’s set to eighty

(written for Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides poetry prompt)

    • Summer is salt water taffy to me. ^_^ Hanging out by the beach in Lincoln City or Depoe Bay and longing to stand there a lot longer than allowed.
