Summer Fiction — A Poem

Sun Dial

“Sun Dial” — C.Birde, 7/18

 

Promises –

measured in fireflies,

rising mercury,

night’s contraction;

Illusion –

heartfelt,

collective,

persistent;

There will be more

time.

Causal & corollary,

the tasks increase –

with each coveted inch

of light,

each slow-tracking bead

of sweat.

Mirage.

Fever dream.

Summer fiction.
