Springing into summer

April 16, 2011


Today summer arrived.

By surprise.

Ushered in.

By a hamsin.

From the east.

With no time to adjust.

To the heat.

Or the sun.

And no help.

From watermelon.

Or summer fruit.

And late afternoon.

I sat in the garden.

And waited for twlight.

Easy to miss.

And.

When darkness dropped.

The spring came back.

In the cool of the evening.

For just a short while.
