Evening June

 

Freedom, all the space is unregimented

And the hundred birds chirp and fly

As darkness hovers above our head

The sight of us sitting is more than handsome

 

Full moon and cosmos flock together

Those gods invisible pray for endless loving

Warmth of our skin is a flame untamed

We gather everything beautiful tonight

 

Together, on this calm and robust time

Our happy zone revels overnight

Declining damages of the earth

You and I stroke our space between us

    The word that makes this poem really work for me is “flock.” Thanks.

    Oh, there are many good lines here, and that final line just makes this so wonderfully chewy.

  5. I like ‘the space between us’ bit.

    Loved the line, “Warmth of our skin is a flame untamed.” This is one of my favorites.

  7. It is a wonderful line–“The sight of us sitting is more than handsome.” You write beautifully. Leslie
