First day of summer

Tomorrow is father’s day and it’s the 1st day of summer. Happy Father’s day! And in honor of summer, two poems:

haiku
Annette Marie Hyder

the heat tries to woo
but I only love you my
air-conditioner

Get yours here —
Annette Marie Hyder

Summer licks
the gelato spring colors away
from the ice-cream cone of the city
(filled to extraordinary heights
and swirled on top with a shiny loop).
Lapped up are the robin’s egg blues,
the soft lime greens, shy pink
and darling yellows.
As summer swishes away at us
one sticky tongue lash at a time
she ignores the way her breath
slowly melts us –
but oh so deliciously.
