Fay Slimm.

That Summer.



That Summer.

Forever that summer will beckon
with mem'ry's
tender repeat of togetherness.


Generous the gem of glimmering
sunset willed
treasure to covert's duo mirror.


Saline drenched and dew-soaked
beach-bed moments
bred the first steps to closeness.


Nights pleasured a vintage desire
when lit fires .
melted the guilt of clandestine.


Under ebony's cloak warmth long
lingered among
late-love's slowly unwrapped song.

        Summer by the sea is a great romantic setting. Your poem contains some great phrasing: the "repeat of togetherness," "beach- bed moments," "the guilt of clandestine,"and "ebony's cloak." A truly inspired write. Loved it. - Phil A.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Am so pleased you enjoyed some of the phrasing in That Summer dear Phil and thank you for saying so -
