Filling my summer

Art by Marcos Beccari

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 two years ago. It is summer here (in its usual pale, damp, dull English way) so the poem has emerged once more.
