Hissing Curve of Summer

A curve of summer hissing

A ripple in the eye

A bending line of space and time

A bluer kiss of sky


A light that dances richly

A silken masquerade

So filled with longing long ago

So poignantly now fades


In gaze that opened slowly

Upon creation’s art

Which only dies before our eyes

Remembered in the heart
