Sunlight dripping through the summer haze

Bright fingers drift through branches

Honey-like running off the comb

Dripping golden light from leaf to twig to bough to ground

Summer and autumn mingle there

On leaves not yet dry, nor truly green.

Heat has had its crescendo

Rain will reign again soon enough

Today’s muggy warmth will not last

but its sort-of-peace will do for now
