Summer Retreats by Daisy Bala
Summer retreats, rejoicing the heart
The perfumed breeze catapults, tugging the emotions
Of glee and enchantment
The tropical joy calling benevolently
In the garden of blooms
Haven of perfumes
Where Honeysuckles and gardenia
With Rich lavenders plotting purple hues
Pink hydrangeas staying loose
Like a summer blushing bride
They Paint my muse
With The heavenly glossy foliages
Lavender florets mooning as lily rampages
I see perennial garden beds in bloom
With Peonies gorgeous smells
Gardenia creamy lustful scents
Filling my nostrils.
Primrose heralding spring
Plumeria intensifying their zing
Scintillating with seductive dewy drops
and blossoms that this mid summer brings!!
The briny balmy evening draws me to walk the beaches too
Inducing clarity on a hot summer day
The turquoise waters splash
In sea foam green and varying teal
The wind rustles past the blushing spume
Swirling in crispy broth
On the sandy beach.
The calm salty moisture
Wreaking havoc on my curls
My nostrils smell the salt crunch
The grains between the toes exfoliate my thoughts
And the oasis of serenity, the ocean
stir clarity inside me
I’ve never been the same !!
This summer’s therapeutic!!
I wanna hire
the Vintage Volkswagen camper van
In puffing holiday zeal.
And make a maiden trip to, rip currents of Santa Monica,
The Maui whooshing past the blushing spume
like the freed wind harmonica.
To the gregarious tropics
It will raise a toast,
As the squirming sunshine
Will boast and host.
a grandeur afternoon gala
Where waves make a choppy sea,
and the wind will rustle past
the chiseled camper’s chassis !!
