I startle awake

in the light, uncanny

calm engulfs dawn.

Chirping birds and

whispered words

turn this heat into

blue sunny morn.

Gentle breeze,

an open window,

summer-crescent visible

above the meadow.

Take it in,

hold your breath

as days get shorter,

stars close together –

green leaves turn brown.
