Cows are grazing happily

Baby calves bouncing

Brought a bottle of whiskey

I won’t say no to chocolate

I was first to wake

You were left to dream some more

Just make the bed, dude

Summer, please come soon.

Bring bright mornings and warm nights.

Bring crickets and calm.

You’re in Central or Eastern.

Siri, what time is…?

Stephanie Hrnack

Sunshine and blue skies,

Twisters, thunder, rain, and hail

The weather’s fickle!

Laugh lines surrounding my mouth

Signs of life well-lived

the phenomenal culture

makes all days good ones

Once more I prevail

The evil word is vanquished

Reading the paper

Gives me a panic attack

Skip to the comics!

Babe smiling so sweet

I smile in loving exchange

As she passes gas

Rain is falling down.

Flowers are trying to bloom.

Begging for sunshine.

Getting into shape is hard.

Screw it! Eat the cake!

The lake is calling.

Friends, drinks, and fun on the waves.

Jump in and get wet!

Peggy Esch

Slow moon in the East

Spent the night hopping over

My short house – now West!
