My Dear Summer, Rain and Goodbye #whatdoyousee

Oh, my dear summer
and rain
and goodbye
why did you conspire
to break my heart
altogether at once
why do I have to remember
you both, as
the happiest
and the saddest
like a photograph
every smile
not knowing
the loneliness
the gloomy feeling
after each radiant
and charming smile
my dearest summer, rain
and goodbye please cease
to connive and stop breaking my heart
altogether, at once

  1. Rain and summer seem to go together for me – and to dance in the rain is a joy. But I can see how that is not the case for everyone. We do often have the world washed of color making our view very dreary but I feel it is our own interpretation that colors the experience. A lovely poem! You did capture the connection of summer, rain and farewells.


  2. You’ve captured our feelings so beautifully and with your whole heart, SweetMich!
    Yes, I am always sad to say ‘goodbye’ to summer and the rains. But, I look forward to their return, when I can say ‘hello, yay, you are back’! πŸ™‚
    (((HUGS))) πŸ™‚


  3. Love the conflict in your words – happiest/saddest, break/altogether, gloomy/radiant. It definitely captures the conflict of relationships – the person you love to hate or the person you hate to love.
