Sister Summer...

Sister Summer
You enter so quietly
With subtle beauty
You arrive almost unnoticed
Until you are here

And when you approach
You bring with you
Such vibrancy
Not just in color
But all the senses

Flowers bloom in your presence
Offering themselves to you
Even the weeds bloom
Returning on queue
With you

Your hot days
Yield to gentle evening breeze
Awaking cricketers
And other nocturnal things
Which also yield to you

You turn things
Upside down, right side up
Long days
But then you leave
As quietly as you came

Stay with us
Sister Summer
Your comfort
Is welcoming
