Filling my summer

Filling my summer


The days have lengthened out,

strung from the first stirrings

of tireless birds woken by dawn

to the dark shapes of bats,

soundlessly haunting the dusk.


My body has stretched out,

relaxed by the light filled hours,

touched warm by the sun’s rays

and moving easy to the music

of you

filling my summer.

I wrote this about a year ago. It is summer here (in its usual pale English way) so the poem has emerged again.

    Summer time personified, laid back and sensual.

    Oh, please bear with me — I cannot hold it in. Erase this if it’s awkward.
    “fill me — this summer, too”
