Blue Wing

2 Comments

Shorelines dip and dive

Shifting rocks and sand

Clinging to sunbathers

o-ka-leeeee — a-lee

A blackbird’s sing-song

Trills in prairie grasses

Rippling paintbrush and foxtail

Stirring up dust bowls

As great clouds gather

Dancing west to east

Awakening woodlands

A sun-freckled fawn dozes

Finding cool green shade

Below July’s sweltering gaze

Blue wing skies skip and play

Whipping smouldering air

Into frenzied storm cells wide

Sailing south as ghostly galleons

Aspen leaves spin as dervishes

Trout splash in concentric circles

A dog’s bark echoes hollow

Chasing dream cats round a rain barrel

Sweet wild silly summer days

Watermelon colours and rainbows

Moments melted, clinging together

All out of breath, collapsed in a heap

As time catches up and moves on
