Edit: Thank you so much for the daily deviation! I was so excited when I found out that I jumped up and down.
Thanks so much to for the feature and suggestion! I really appreciate it.
I'm so awestruck right now, thank you!
Also, thank you to all the new watchers and to the deviants who favorite this piece.
I can't say thank you to all of you but I really do appreciate your generosity.
this poem is for a contest that #LiterarySanctuary [link]
it's supposed to be about the month of June. how could this poem be about June?!?! WHAT ABOUT THIS POEM IS JUNE-ISH? WAT.
yeah, i know it's pretty vague but i will explain:
"crux" (which is in the second stanza, fifth line) is a constellation that can only be seen in April, May and June
the rest of the intended references are made in the first line of the third stanza. "long" - June has the longest days, "sunny" - June is very sunny (at least in TX), and "humidity" - in TX, June is very humid. (i don't go outside which is why i'm so pale)
that's honestly it, and i hope this is good enough for the contest!
thank you and good luck to everyone else that entered!
p.s.) i don't capitalize my poetry, i'm sorry if that disqualifies me.
p.s.s.) i wrote two poems in one night WOAH
