Ah Summertime, where everything around me turns into beautiful inspiration: basking in the sunshine, riding my bicycle, holding hands, s’mores roasted over a campfire, chasing lightning bugs, reading chic-lit, frolicking in the warm waves, getting my nails dirty in damp earth, wearing sandals, eating fresh fruits, singing songs, long sloppy kisses, and watching fireworks.
I can’t go an hour without scratching a few phrases into my journal, words that give me pause, remind me of my youth and easier living, or help me embrace my life…all over again.
It is my honor to share with you two such “scratches” that turned into poems of intimate love, joyous celebration, and a brilliant life well lived. Enjoy!
In a Blue Dress
by Blaze Lazarony
Oh, sea, kind sea, upon your likeness I gaze.
Are you aware of your unexplainable beauty?
Turning heads and receiving admiration just for being,
Allowing many creatures to make their home in your layers of crinoline skirts,
Some with teeth larger than mine, and others just small celled organisms, not even in possession of a heart,
And you, spinning and twirling effortlessly,
In an endless rhythm, and yet a uniqueness to your every movement.
You are perfectly attired for every occasion; your wish to reflect your partner seems paramount,
But it is you, through no desire of your own, who take center stage.
All become enraptured—a momentary sigh.
Your frock not any blue dress,
But woven of aquamarine,
and maybe a Crayola color or two.
That invoke a feeling of:
Vastness without weight;
Stature without airs,
Emotion without tears.
Yank the curly-queue pigs’ tail free
Smash green waves across your hip
Gaze down at the watery pink fruit
Bite letting the air escape
Swallow the sugar dripping down your throat
Wonder upon the mystery of its creation
Spit black seeds into the ground
Mixing your salvia with its hope
Sowing a new life
