Of love Of summer (Day 750)

Temperate afternoon   delight 
of those with dirty hands   sticky 
with the residue 
    of love   of summer   
       of rinsing off the last night’s dreams   
           of peeling paper birch   revolving hours 
drift   dilute   redolent of soft pine resin 
   and sun-baked dust   amidst the hums 
   and clicks 
   and other comfortable sounds   
albescent sky awash with unseen stars
