Young Summer’s Cadence

Young summer commanding my name
Bewitching souls cast under her spell 
Metrical reverberations I once knew so well 
A musical song and trance 
Resonating within
And lyrical voices dance 
An upward lift of the magic wand, soon begets romance 
Like rhythmic beats on city streets in the daytime heat
My lover, so sweet  
Clear blue skies forging pathways
Permitting for the long sun rays 
To linger on sloth-like and slow 
Lazy, long summer days 
Laughter and melody
Backdrop for memory 
Lolling on in warm summer ways 
And lyrical voices continue to dance 
The magic wand; A swift romance 
Elated gaiety and the hours escape me 
Sun showers to greet the evening moon 
In the city that never sleeps
Filled with Midsummer Night Dreams 
Poetry is in the air 
Paramours in lovers lair 
Speak to me about all of life’s themes 
Share with me fears, hopes and dreams 
And the lyrical voices continue to dance 
The magic wand; prolonged romance 
The cycles spin like wheels on spokes 
Wanderlust distance; lands unknown
Inquisitive minds under the summer sky
Charming finds it’s way to disarming 
Young summer cadence so tranquil and calming 
A cadence that rises and falls; betrothed 
Inamorata in love; devoted 
Lovers in summer and foolish; doltish
Coming full circle again
It ends. 
And pensive. 
Young summer, you are like the breeze against my skin
Creating goosebumps
On the outside
And also within 
Forging pathways before us to create and to dwell 
Summer evening stories told by the well 
Your music and motion pleasing to my ear 
A summertime love most sincere 

About Maya

I like words like "labyrinthian," "kerfuffle," and "serendipitous" because they're mellifluous. I love poetry, pumpkin ales, sangria, long summer days, Fall foliage, going out of my way to step on crunchy leaves in October, live music, Jazz, Salsa dancing, theater, film (foreign and indie), the arts (myriad varieties), dance (in theory and practice) and any place where I can sit outdoors and take it all in.
