Summer Idyll

by Kevin T. McEneaney
Thu Aug 18th, 2016



Summer evening fragrance,

sun dipping orange

through tree matrix

in refulgent pink:

scent of lily, poppy, dahlia,

coreopsis, linum;

guttural frogs on pond,

hummingbird wings abuzz,

giggle of naive toddler;

scent of new mown grass,

full moon rising in east,

half glass of wine on table;

wonder whispering in ear

as a black ant strolls

an errand across my desk:

outside of known time,

this ant ambassador

from the multitude

who rule earth....
