August Lemonade

August Lemonade

This late summer month,
when heat clings
with an air of resignation
of fading persistence,
was always your favorite.

Retirement spent outdoors,
gardening, preparing
for the coming change.
Shirtless, you wore the sun
like it was your own.

I always see this month
as yours, see you
holding a lemonade
in the still air
beneath a blazing sun.


Lemonade in August was written for Monday’s haibun prompt from Frank Tassone at dVerse ~ Poets Pub.
I decided to rewrite it in free verse.

Shared with Open Link Night #297 at dVerse ~ Poets Pub.
