The Street Fair

The Street Fair

written by: Bruce Levine



A cool breeze
Drifted through the window screen
Refreshing the air
After the hot summer morning

The street fair
That had been a diversion
Radiating energy
On a scale of one to ten

Rambling moments
Through booths lining Main Street
Bountiful displays
Of paintings, photos and jewelry

Harvesting mem’ries
To be placed on a shelf
Iconographic images
To be hung on a wall

Seasonal tourists
Pursing the assemblage of art forms
Silver reflections’
To be hung on a chain ‘round the neck

Residents abjuring
Then retreating to their apartment
Enjoying the day
After the luxury of their home town street fair
