Indian Summer




indian 
summer
makes me 
laugh
at winter
dancing
 like a 
grasshopper
over 
fall games
of  
twister

singing 
in
the sun
to-do’s
not 
yet
begun
but put
aside…
while 
it’s nice
outside

the ants
they've 
got it 
together
they know 
this
won’t last
forever
it's
just a 
temporary 
sum
a tiny
 cookie 
crumb

indian 
summer
gets
 the 
ladybugs
flying 
like
they do
in
that 
old poem
about her
troubles
 when 
she roams
she'd
reallt
better 
get 
on 
home

indian
summer
soon it 
will be
winter 
snow 
covered 
earth
awaiting
re-birth

an old 
cycle 
ends
new one
continues
the 
spin
the
year of 
color
begins
agains

so
drink 
it in
like it will
 never end
making us
laugh
at
indian
summer
dancing
into
winter
