Summer’s Song

So he continued to press on,
always seeking opportunities for growth;
reading the language of the universe.

It was in this state,
whilst driving down the road,
chance brought forth
a beauty to behold.

The seed pods of a wisteria
That climbed an old ash
were swaying in the breeze,
clanging like so many wind chimes.

And like himself,
summer’s song did carry on.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?
Last few words: 
Observational piece. Something I saw whilst driving and thinking. iPhone journal stuff. Tim

I love this small piece of sweetness. for some reason unknown, I wanted to read it with an Irish accent. from the start, it tripped along nicely, leading me down the path to a well timed (poetically speaking) ending which I liked best!

And like himself,
summer’s song did carry on.
I visualize your muse sitting on your shoulder, with her ankles crossed, whispering in your ear!

"Poetic license
the poets
the free will to
embroider a good tale
and deviate from the established rules of language"~Jackweb
