Throwback Friday: Summer by Liyona

Constantly falling

In beat with the



The withered old


Tree roots

And long grasses

Sway while

the one-eyed cat watches

I hum a tune

With grains

Of dirt in my fingernails

And the hope of lemonade


It is a time

And a world

I wish to live in for a while



Author’s Note: I originally wrote this poem in February and I think its perfect to bring it back for this year’s February. It is fun to dream about warmth and sunny weather when its cold and cloudy outside. Oh! I want some lemonade… Photo by Louis Hansel @shotsoflouis on Unsplash.


Liyona is an “average joe” kind of writer who likes to think about ordinary things and then write them down. Ever since she can remember, she has been rhyming words and creating lyric poems. During her college years, she took a more serious bent toward writing and started to post on her blog (The Life and Times of a Quirky Character.) Currently, she resides on the East Coast of the United States just north of the country’s capital.
