Summer green

Summer Green

Summer green
goes to gold
and red,
roots swell and store
the summer sun.

plants fecund
let their children fall,
voles pack up
saving for winter.

I watch,
as the sun fades,
hoping
that this is the year
that summer never ends.

As always – click to enlarge. Real leaves, gathered from my rainy backyard on Friday evening; covered with organza on both sides; machine sewn to white background. Original poem, printed on organza and layered on top of two pieces of green organza. Spruce trees drawn with oil pastels. It needs a backing to add some strength; the fireweed leaves at the bottom are warping, after just two days.
