Contemplation

If on a summers night
the axis
balanced
rises slowly.
All moments hence
pause
lightly...
gesture perhaps.

If in repose
after rain showers song
the thinker
not thinks
yet again.

Ah, steam rises
from concretes heat
misting in the dark.
Lungs expand and contract.
Midnights rhythm
caresses each and every one
being human being
the stillness
the dampness...
the turn.
