My Love of Summer

How does summer fly?
Warmth of days gone by
Barbeques imply
Tasty chicken thigh
No chores
Scents waft to the sky
Past a loud magpie

Autumn I’ll defy
Sunset we decry
Hawk soars
Weather is bone dry
Cherish mid-July
Lake shores
Warmth of days gone by
How does summer fly?


Today’s poem combines the prompt at, which calls for a seasonal poem featuring all senses and a rhetorical question, and the dVerse Poets Pub Lai Nouveau poetry form.
