Huddling into a
shape
of restlessness,
their sounds
precede
their synchronicity
as they swarm
themselves
into a V;
gathering as
misshapen bevies
that check-mark
the sky.

The slow dipping
of the world
away from
our only star,
transforms warm greens
to the blood colors
of sunsets;
triggering
innate instincts
to follow
sun lines
back
to the upside
down of things.

I look up
with my arms
wrapped around
the heat of me,
witnessing,
summer’s broken spell,
abandoned,
to the creeping
crisp air of
autumn
made whole.

her hair swayed in the wind,
delicate and gentle

her eyes were like beads of honey,
just like amber and chestnut

her spirit soared like an eagle,
graceful yet powerful

she was like 'summer linen',
woven intricately;
flying in a field of sunflowers
The mind is an endless foreign land
A place to find escape
When life becomes a heavy hand
And living is a jape.

Actually no one could remember
When last rain had fallen
So last night to everyone’s surprise,
Some clouds felt sorry for us
And showered us with a little sprinkling
Of rain
