SUMMER


Reclined and sweaty
While catching your breath –
Back to the stairs;
And breathless bosom
Skyward!

A striking pose
On your flat’s front steps, while
Winding down from your brisk accustomed jog.

Skin glowing – suffused
By the brilliant radiance
Of Summer’s morning sun – and
Cooling by degrees with each calming breath.

Eyes shielded, and closed
Behind stylish sunglasses
Prospectively, peering inwards –
Scanning your memories and expectations.

Such quietude! oozing poise
And confidence;
Inspiration;
Vigour;
And overall good health!
