Summer Renewal- Michael Erickson

Renew this flesh of mine upon the heat of summer,

That my bones may be warm until winter’s end.

In the passion of a setting sun,

Let me ignite my soul that it may live on.

I cannot forget the pleasure of cool water,

As it courses across my worn and dried out feet.

Or drink in rolling rain storms,

Who’s bruised surfaces cry sweet relief upon aching brows.

Now is time for us to stretch out roots,

Intertwining our individuality to one.

Why might you ask should we?

So we may all survive the icy fingers of winter.
