Summer’s Keep

Summer's Keep

Stratified castle
with gilded gray stone
towering above
an open meadow.
Floral carpet
& granite facade
graced by the sun’s
radiance,
its warm rays
chiseling
white glaciers,
ice cold water
cascading
downward
to refresh
moat-like
aquifers.
Mountain goats
tip-toing bastion
to bastion,
covering blind
spots along
the curtain wall,
as summer
defends itself
against the
coming autumn.

    Magnificent ‘keep”

  3. I picture a fat marmot sunning himself among the lower rocks, or maybe he is busy adding more fat in preparation for the coming winter. πŸ™‚ –Curt
