Wildflowers

yellow wildflowers in Sacramento, California

 

Amongst these wild fields

That rise and grow

Aglow with bright fragile petals

I remember

All that I had lost long ago

An unbroken heart

An untroubled mind

A soul aflame

With youthful passion

Although all of these

Have been extinguished

By the misfortunes

Of yesterday

Today

I pray

I will find a way

To live and love well

With what

Withered goodness and hope

Remain

Long after these golden fields fade.

Good-bye Summer

With autumn literally just a few days away, I want to take one last look at the beauty of summer in this week’s post.
