Summer Day

see the rain drops
traverse the latticework
holding up the rose plant;
the small pup
with brown bulging eyes
white paws
late summer afternoon
shady pines
brush the cool wind;
blue skies with
billowy clouds;
lemonade, bitter sweet
in the sweating glass
with quick melting ice;
oppressive heat
stunts the memory;
the murky coffee
is not lemonade;
listen to the tears fall:
beebees in a tin pail.

South China Sea
July 3, 1970
