Summer Songs

Lazy day,

Thoughts a sway,

Swinging through the trees.


Hummingbirds and bumble bees

Fly their flights,

Luring me away.


Summer sun,

Oh, wonder one

Lurking through the trees.


Thoughts of you,

Onslaughts of true

Bring me to my knees.


Cicada concert singing,

Bells of truth a-ringing,

Gospel piano bringing.


Strained thoughts,

Of good news sadly wrought,

And Judgment Day’s

Drenched memories unsought.

Handcrafted poetry written by John Hines, 8/2/2015 

I wrote this short poem on a sweet summer day spent reading Chuck Palahniuk’s Damned in a little red cabin amongst the trees on a Western North Carolina mountain.
