Summer is Surrendering

I can say it now,

I feel Summer surrendering.

Something is coming for Her,
to take Her.

She’s been waiting for this,
anticipating the moment with
Her throat bared.

I admire Her;

Imagine how it is to be so bountiful,
and yet to yield without hesitation.

When I no longer serve, will I slip away from myself so willingly?

What if saying ‘yes’ means Death
lays bittersweet kisses upon my neck?
