Fiery Summer (Nonet, Cinquain and Rictameter)

by Meena Krish   May 5, 2009

Summer arrives blazing the blue sky
on his path no cloud dares to stand,
he scalds earth with humid eyes
to crisp taste turn green lands
From the start of day
till nighttime hours
his fervent
breath sings

Scent of
burnt earth allures
his lady to join him,
charming her with his serenade

Sweet eyes
light with passion,
her soft voice melds with him.
Scarlet fire cloaks a rich forest
as shocking flames of her sultry love burns.
Elegant green robe fall from trees
splendor of the forest
blackens in her
sweet eyes
