Summer has come

Annette Marie Hyder
(first week of summer 2011)

flowers are twining her hair
like roses climbing a trellis
petals tumble
fat and slow like honey
the wind shakes them
like a pale tremble of wheat

and Summer lets
her Rapunzel tresses
waterfall down the tower
in a golden sheet
of rippling sunlight.

Don’t you want to grab a handful?
