Settling like mist
Slowly you begin,
Covering ground in wet advances
The bonus of summer
The bane of blocked sewers,
You’re all that’s sweet-smelling
Mood-lifting and love.
Every drop, it does remind me
The ecstasy of quenched thirst.
Swallowed by the earth you fall to
Released as a perfume pulsating.
As temperatures drop
heart-beats go wilder.
