Held in our cups
of “sweet tea”
causing our heads to spin
saying words we may not recall.
Uncle Joe tell silly jokes
daring aunt Jane to do her dance
a dance stuck in our hearts
like glue or old chewing gum
from Jimmy and Julie’s summer wedding
Oh summer sunset whispers of laughter and living
of Whispers from kids we carry
of kids growing and leaving
of granny holding papaw’s hand
of a family tree all in one spot
of time spent together
of life well lived
through the sunset whispers of Summer.

Thank you Marcia 🙏
Loved your poem. I like the tea and lemonade containers.
Thank you very much Peggy. The best part for me is my groom reading it 🙏
Yes, his reading was very nice – his voice is pleasant.
He says he is not good. He is an Engineer by profession; so he tends to limit his expertise to numbers and things in that line. I think he is amazing 😁💝
Nice to think your spouse is amazing. My spouse is an amazing man also. Lucky us! 🙂
Thank you my dear 🙏
