Nice artwork that shows the passing seasons mentioned in this poem. It always seems like summer goes by so fast.

Congrats on the honorable mention in the contest.

Keep writing

    thank you and I agree, summer runs while winter tends to drag.

    You're welcome. I think it's that way for anyone who isn't a winter sports fanatic.

Who's afraid of the big bad Fall?
Who knows if we'll get Fall at all?

So, let's forget shadows of the fall,
enjoy the Summer, and have a ball.

Excellent 5-7-5, MyBrooks, and best of luck in the contest.

Don (aka Ogden)

Stop! The world turns to quickly now! The older I get the less patience I have for these seasons racing by! Spring hardly got here...I thought winter was holding it for ransom...and now I read of summer with fall on its' heels! It's a mad crazy world.....if only we could slow down and enjoy it a moment.....

Ah, this is a fine summer 5-7-5 that bids us to celebrate the season, it's long daylight, and the harvest as fall waits in the shadow of summer as if offstage and awaiting its cue to enter. Your poem has a haiku like intensity. Beckons, creep, and play are strong, active verbs that propel your poem forward.

No apostophe is needed in the title Shadows'.

Thank you for sharing and celebrating. I wish you contest success with your entry.

I think this is a good entry for the 5-7-5 Poetry writing prompt.
Your short verse tells clearly of the transition from summer to fall.
Well done and good luck to you with this one in the competition.

Wait no more fall. tweeting birds snuggled in nests, the roses blooming and clutched to peoples breast, longer day to enrich out lives. You get the idea. Fun and very beautifully presented.
