JULY SUNRISE

JULY SUNRISE

Step back.

 

The orange sun is sliding

southerly. Soon the summer

 

birds will slip away, too,

following the light.

 

And you?

 

Ah, the shadows,

the silence.

 

How many years to learn

to love them: the hollows

 

left in nests, the spaces left

by fallen leaves?
