This Summer Breeze

This summer breeze comes and goes,

an invisible ebb and flow;

lush trees leap up to meet it

creating in their dance the music

 

that entices the distant wind chime

and the birds hovering,

spread-winged in flight

to softly join in,

and the chorus flows in

and out of me

as a sea of peace

chasing away again and again

the sticky stillness of the heat.

 

Some may stay indoors to avoid the humidity,

but without some uncomfortableness,

how can one appreciate the blessings

given so freely,

like that of the tree-dance ceremony

performed so gracefully

in the summer breeze.
