Summer Porch

Shade shrouded retreats
Cling stoically
Inviting oases
Seducing our souls
Artifacts of sanguine summers
Weathered and worn
Windows thrown open
Environments joined
Cobble together
Diverse domains
Paint chipped rockers
Sagging seats
Gallop in place
Motion without meaning
Rivulets of condensation
Slide lazily down
Frosted pitchers of
fresh squeezed lemonade
Time suspended
Friendships renewed
Loved ones drawn closer
Laughter dancing
To the crickets song
Stories retold
Memories reminded
Secrets shared
Life renewed
On a summer porch

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer .wordpress.com as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
