Rengay Through the Seasons #51 [1-4]

by Masago: Rengay #51 (Aug 17-23, 2008), Verses 1-4 (of 6)

Summer's end — covered with a yellow / polka-dot bikini.
Hot-dog... a bite leads to / mustard spots on my shirt.
Somebody forgets / to bring the insect repellent — mosquito welts.
Ta-ta, ta-ta-ta... a sapsucker peppers / the birch with holes.

Or it could be the metal power pole in the front yard...
Yellow and red - hmm, must have to end with yellow perhaps...

I can hear the rhym. :)

Borut said...

Polka, the Slovenian national dance, and a hot-dog - a pefect lead-in into sudden realization: what you call 'a sapsucker' I used to call 'a spotted woodpecker'!?:)Learning we are!?:)

John McDonald said...

new name to me too

Nick Zegarac said...

The end of summer is never a thought I like to entertain. You've made it more palpable and accepting.

you've introduced a noisy guest for the speckled effect

Masago said...

Janice: Not much sap there, eh. :-)

Andrew: :-)

Borut/John: They actually peck perfect little square holes and when they fill with sap a few hours later they come and suck up the sap (and any little bugs they may have stuck on).

Nick: Thank you!

Polona: *smile* Thanks!
