Experience June

by A. Willow Bends

flowers, fresh grass
quickly will these days pass
weddings, swimming, ballgames, sunning
picnics, planting, fishing, varied funning
basking in the sights and feel of June
someone picks a guitar tune
gently breathe this in
the summer

June 'Even the Odds' Poem writing prompt entry
Writing Prompt
What does the month of June mean to you? There are a number of very important dates within this month...and it's the first month of summer vacation...and it's halfway through the calendar year...anything! :) Just come up with something 'June' that you can write about in your June 'Even-the-Odds' Poem!

As a reminder, the 'Even-the-Odds' poetry format has a syllable count of 2-4-6-8-10-9-7-5-3-1 [starts out with evens and finishes with odds]
The first line (two syllables) and the last line (one syllable) are essentially synonyms
There is no rhyme requirement, although it isn't discouraged.
An example is included at the end of this announcement although REMEMBER TO CENTER your text [very loosely resembling a diamond-shape]

So, join in and tell us all about what June means to you! Make us smile! Make us sob! Make us annoyed! But - and here's the important part - make us want to vote for yours! We look forward to reading yours! ;) :)

Evening Performance
By Y. M. Roger

Flit through the air
Chromatic symphony
Of effulgent streaks and glitter
Performing ?neath where the trees meet the stars
Tonight, the crickets and frogs join in
Enhancing the vibrant show
You?ll never forget
Dancing with

This is the month, warm, but not too hot. Cool, but not too cold. All the freshness has returned to remind us that summer stretches ahead of us to enjoy. But it seems to go so quickly! Enjoy it while it lasts!
