Death & Rebirth

You think summer’s

never going to get here.

Little sprouts here

& there.  You wait & wait.

Spring finally arrives.

It peters out rather

quickly, though,

and summer’s set

to stay.  Nothing

grows all that much.

It just stays brown.

And dead.  And hot.

You might slow

your pace.  Summer’s

stopped hers.

She’s looking ahead

to rainy weather

again, so growth

will continue

happening.  Death

& rebirth.  Death

& rebirth.
