Just before the days threaten with scorching heat on concrete and asphalt,
and bare arms glisten from tiny pools gathering in revolt
from a shock to the system,
A break from the frigidity of months past,
a light breeze on the back of your ear
and rays that bring a sweet smile to your face.
The makings of unlayering;
doing away with socks and in their stead
come sandals, tank tops and flowing skirts
ushering in the Summer season and making space
for more meet and greets in the street.
If April showers bring May flowers,
each flower brung gives charge to the coming Sun.
(And for this, we give thanks.)
