A gauze of filtered light set the pattern

of a checkered sun streaming across the table.


An uneasy ghost of air plagued the room,

circling quietly in an overhead fan then twisting to the floor

where it slides into corners, stirring dust and yesterdays webs.


A brief summer steals the warmth of August days

with a strong hand as cool evening currents prevail

while leaves turn lightly like whispers.


A star carpet of diamonds slips overhead. A black background

of infinity lays bold and without equal in the northern sky.
