Early Wind

As we slept
the North winds rose
sweeping across the sands
like a shushing wave

the sun’s fire returned
baking into the cracked ground
radiating upward
to ripple the air

the early wind
with promise of autumn
carried still more summer
in its arms

as we seek shade
and a hint of cool
wishing for the break
in endless summer – Caroline A. Slee
