summer night #133 magpie tale


sit in a summer night
 your head tossed back
 into the given light of the moon
and listen to the creatures speak
the cicada, the coyotes,the owl
lift your head to the silent flight of the bat
whose sillouette you see against the evening sky
while sweat beads over your body
sweltering in season
the air thick with moisture
 and lightening bugs
signaling silently for love
and you become
part of it
as a salty drop hits your lips
and you close your eyes
let spirits of the summer night
beguile you to sleep

  4. This is, quite simply, luscious. Favorite lines/images: "the given light of the moon," and "lightning bugs signaling silently for love."

    What a writer!
