Chain (an acrostic Poem)

Connecting the dots ways always the easy part

Hard part was then making the dominoes fall in order

As so many factors had to be juggled for the Rube Goldberg plan to work

It was almost something straight from a summer blockbuster

Not that he had to worry about.  The first link broke leaving him dreaming of what might have been

Grill (an acrostic poem)

Good char slowly developed on the wieners

Releasing their juices to drip onto the hungry flames below

It made a pleasing aroma to those gathered around

Leaving them to contemplate the communal feast they were about to partake

Loving the dog days of summer

Fall (an acrostic poem)

Finding the remains of summer scattered upon the ground

As I walk along the shrinking daylight

Leaving the time of green behind

Looking toward the time of stark contrasts of dark and white

Wander (an acrostic poem)

 

Which way should I go next?

As the summer breaks over the horizon

Number of paths open up before me

Destiny awaits on the other side

Every step will be an adventure

Ready or not, here I come!

Final Exam (an acrostic poem)

 

For all the marbles

It is the last hurdle before the summer

Now is the time to prove mastery

And if you do, the glory of that elusive 4.0 awaits

Lest you fall into the pit of despair

 

Everyone dreads that test, even the professors

X-ray vision on both sides looking for the core of understanding

Amid the trivia of facts and figures

Make your best-educated guess and may the odds be ever in your favor

Frisky (an acrostic poem)

Finals were done and now the summer officially started

Rick looked at the VW Bug as it, and his girlfriend, drove away

It would suck not seeing or touching her for the next couple of weeks

She would probably be a mess of tears right now

Kind of like he was, until he had a very happy thought

You know a binging of Fortnite without interruption was now possible

Light of the World (an acrostic poem)

Lifting the handle, Stephanie looked inside the box

It contained a whole lot of nothing

Giggling she closed it and looked at Timothy

How are you able to afford that?”  She asked

Timothy smiled, “I just saved up all the sun rays I could from the summer.”

 

Of course you did,” she said.  “I love it!  It’s just what I need.”

Forgetting he didn’t like physical contact, Stephanie gave him a huge hug

 

To her amazement

He didn’t push her away

Even pulled her closer

 

Well the moment was short lived

Or that’s how it felt to Stephanie

Releasing Timothy back into his own world she sighed inwardly

Loving someone like Timothy was easier than people thought

Didn’t this echo how God felt?

Summer Sensations

Matt closed his eyes and reached out with his other senses.  The rustle from behind him could be that stupid squirrel that Katie had said stole some of his lunch last week.  At least it sounded the same to Matt.  It had been a week, and to be honest, he hadn’t really been paying attention to exactly how that stupid squirrel had sounded anyway.

Still Matt let his imagination wander just like the critter was doing behind him.  Katie was definitely missing out today.  The smell of freshly bloomed lilacs perfumed the air and amplified the lovely warm feeling of the sun playing along his face.  He broke out into a smile and stood up; knowing his lunch break was almost over.  Matt began to whistle as he whipped out his white cane and began tapping to the beat while feeling his way back to the office.  Katie must have been blind to miss out on an afternoon like this.
