Summer Flowers

Beneath the sun, bold and bright,
Colors dance in soft daylight.
Petals open, wide and free,
In fields where dreams dare to be.

Gentle breezes, scents so sweet,
Nature's rhythm, soft repeat.
Azure skies above so vast,
Summer's warmth is here at last.

In this dance of light and hue,
Every bloom feels fresh and new.
Season's canvas, wide and clear,
Summer flowers bring us cheer.
A vibrant field under the bright sun, alive with colors
A vibrant field under the bright sun, alive with colors

Morning Glories

With dawn, they open, shy and slow,
Blue hues catch the first light's glow.
Climbing high, they softly cling,
To fences, whispers of summer they bring.

Their trumpets greet the rising sun,
A new day’s promise, just begun.
Velvet petals, edges kissed by dew,
In morning's grace, they start anew.

As shadows shorten, noon draws near,
These fleeting beauties hold dear.
By afternoon, they fold and sigh,
Until next morn, under the sky.
Morning Glories climbing a rustic fence at dawn

Hibiscus! The Color Bomb

In summer, the gardens explode,
With hibiscus, in colors bestowed.
From red, pink to yellow,
Each bloom is a fellow,
In a vibrant and lively abode.

Their petals, like silk, softly gleam,
In sunlight, they capture the dream.
Bright orange and red,
In the garden bed,
They dance in the sun's golden beam.

A yellow hibiscus so bright,
Shines like a star in the night.
Its petals so fine,
In the warm sunshine,
It brings pure delight to our sight.

The pink ones, with grace, they unfold,
Their beauty, a wonder to behold.
Each hue so divine,
In the warm sunshine,
A spectacle of colors untold.

In summer's cloak, asters bloom,
Under fading daylight's loom.
Stars on earth, in twilight's grasp,
Silent sentinels, nature's clasp.

Violet hues against the green,
In dusk's light, a tranquil scene.
Petals soft, in evening's chill,
Hold the summer's fleeting thrill.

Phlox at Noon

Phlox spread wide in daylight's reign,
A tapestry, no two the same.

Clusters tight, in friendship bound,
Above the earth, they barely mound.

Swords of color, stand in row,
Gladiolus, proud and bold.
Tall they reach, towards the sky,
In hues of red, their standards fly.

Guardians of the garden gate,
In summer's heat, they stand, they wait.
Each petal, a silent vow,
Against time's march, they do not bow.

Snapdragon’s Tale

Snapdragons rise, a fiery throng,
In gardens where the bold belong.
Jaws agape in silent cheer,
Colors bright, they draw you near.

Tales of old, in petals penned,
Where dragons roared and myths ascend.
In sun’s embrace, they stand, they blaze,
A spectacle that holds the gaze.

By eve’s light, they do not cower,
In twilight’s kiss, they seem to flower.
