Five Free Verse Poems About July
Ripe tomatoes, fresh from the vine,
Digestive table treasures, fully divine.
Juicy with the taste of earth in each bite,
Aromatics of soil and herbs, summertime in flight.
July bakes them to sun-kissed perfection,
Full of flavors and textures beyond compare.
The flavors round out and tame down,
As the juice drips down the chin, everywhere.
With basil, summer comes alive,
A simple act weaving time and place.
Sun and soil, water and air,
Land and hands, and God’s good grace.
A warm breeze of the high midday,
Cools sunburnt skin to keep the heat at bay.
July sun baking the earth beneath my feet,
But a gentle zephyr brings solace to defeat.
Invisible fingers comb through my hair,
With a tempest unseen, wild and fair.
Its voice a whisper, yet palpable strength,
Its touch, a caress of nature’s at-length.
Meadows sway with the harmony it brings,
Waves kiss the shore with gentlest of rings.
The breeze sings its song of summer’s heat,
And cools the skin with rhythms sweet.
July nights brimming with twilight,
Brought to light by fireflies in flight.
Cautious their dance, they tease and play,
And then disappear without delay.
Their quick pace a dance of fire and light,
A mesmerizing display of flashes white.
Summer nights thick with the sound,
Of July’s life in its full surround.
Beneath the stars and faithful sky,
The fireflies show us how to fly.
Free and symbolic, magic in flight,
July’s mystery deep into the night.
July, the month of freedom and remembrance,
With festivities such as picnics and parades in attendance.
Honoring our land, heroes and those who fell,
Showing patriotism with a collective rebel yell.
From Gettysburg’s field to the raising of the flag,
We give tribute to freedom’s magnanimous mag.
The Fourth of July, perhaps the most prominent day,
Reflects a spirit of unity that’s found its way.
Our land of the free, built on the foundation,
Of patriotism, revolution, and the grand notion,
That all are created equal, without exception,
And life, liberty, and justice are our national directive.
July marks the height of summer’s reign,
Soon it will come to an end, that’s not hard to explain.
The trees will paint with a rusty hue,
And the sweet July sun will bid us adieu.
In the morning’s light, the air feels mild
The warmth of summertime has dissolved.
Crickets chirp, leaves crunch underfoot,
Telling us that summer is quickly put.
The first signs of fall and a change in the air,
Remind us, summer’s end is almost here.
But memories captured of July’s grace,
Will last with us, a sweet-summer’s embrace.

Red, White, and Boom
Fireworks’ light explodes,
Crackling, shining, dazzling bright,
July’s sultry sun
Embracing every statured Being
Summer’s true essence
July’s heat slows down
Nature takes a break. We too.
Lazy daze of sun.
Green energy flows,
Nurturing life with patience,
July’s green washes.
July’s round moon glow
Silvery light through the trees,
Night’s breath of fresh air.

A Beach Vacation
July is the perfect month to go
To the beach where there’s sun, sea, and glow
I pack my swimsuit
And prepare to be cute
Waves crashing as sun warms my toes.
July the perfect month to have fun
Cookouts and grilling can not be outdone

Music can’t be beat
BBQ party under the sun.
It’s July, time for a nice break
Heading to the mountains or lake
No work no frustration
Relax, unwind, recharge, and remake.

Five Tanka Poems about July
Golden sunlight pours
Inviting warmth, timelessness
July’s beauty in her prime
A canvas for life to thrive
July’s blooming flowers,
A tapestry of life’s hues
Alive with colors
Bumblebees revel in blooms
Nature’s symphonies ensue
The heat of July
Sizzling, enveloping all
Melting away ease
In the murkiness of heat
Beauty finds a way to breathe
In serene stillness
Lunar light cast upon earth
July’s soothing calm
Nature adorned, crystal night
Cradled in its tranquil arms
July brings with it
The mighty sea’s endless waves
Carrying with them
A salty oceanic breeze
Generous with its healing praise.
Five Sonnet Poems about July
July’s Brilliant Light
Oh July, with your brilliant golden light,
Your warm embrace, sweet tones, and golden hues,
You paint the land with a sweet delight,
And sing the songs of life in full view.
With roses at your feet and birds in air,
You bring forth beauty and life unrestrained,
Your beauty undiminished and rare,
As the sun pours down unstinted and unchained.
Such loveliness as you bring each day,
A symphony of songs and colors bright,
Enlivening each meadow, tree, and bay,
And pushing back each cold and darkened night.
Oh July, your radiant beams we need,
In you, all life shines and our spirits feed.
The Heart of Summer
July, sun-drenched and sweet with warmth supreme,
A season blessed with nature’s pure delight,
When golden fields stretch out like living seams,
And streams sing out with their refreshing might.
A time of lazy days and sultry weeks,
When all the world seems bathed in brilliant sheen,
As fireflies light up and crickets ‘chirp’ creeps,
A melodic lullabytinged with unseen.
Each day a new symphony of shades and tones,
With rainbows cast across the verdant fields,
And honeyed light that softly sears and shone,
A season of life full of hope that yields.
Oh wondrous July, your heart beats so true,
Bringing with it magic, life, and sun anew.
July’s Crimson Blooms
Oh, July, with your crimson blooms so bright,
A song of summer, in waves of scarlet height,
A melody of life, that with each delight,
Feels our hearts with its homegrown might.
The roses by the fence, scarlet and bold,
Sipping in each drop of sun and dew,
Wreathing with innocent beauty, pure gold,
Melancholy and fragrant as honeyed stew.
The heat, the force behind each petal’s tone,
Undiminished by time or by fleeting ages,
A redolent beauty that each soul has known,
And in each heart, little girl, and wise sages.
Oh July, you are the red of love in bloom,
A season of hope, joy, and earthly perfume.
Toucans, Turtles, and July’s Seas
The summer sun is high, and the heat is strong,
As the mighty sea crashes and roars with song,
Toucans watch over turtles, as they lay,
Serenaded by nature on this summer’s day.
The pelicans are soaring and care-free,
As banks of sand shift and flow with the sea,
In July, the ocean is alive and bold,
Full of adventure, and tales, and stories untold.
With each heartbeat, the sound of the sea swarms,
The surf and spray ebb and flow like garden norms,
Shells and pebbles, and sand on the shore,
July’s sea is like a mighty lion’s roar.
Oh summer’s sea, you are loud, bold, and true,
In July’s hot embrace, nature’s banner renew.
Sweet July’s Midnight Bloom
In sweet July, the midnight air is pure,
With scents of rose and jasmine that procure,
A gentle magic, in every blooming hue,
A softness so intense, like a love anew.
The dark and sultry night, a force untamed,
A wonderland of life, of beauty, and of fame,
A mystery full of riches and of life unrestrained,
An oasis in the infinite desert of life’s game.
The night sky bursts forth with song and praise,
A symphony of stars, and constellations that amaze,
July’s midnight bloom, a masterpiece of high arts,
A song of life and beauty, a joining of all parts.
In sweet July, the midnight air seems to say,
“Come and join me, and let life reign today!”
