Poetry Break: Rochi Zalani Summer Night Marilyn L Davis two drops of ink

Summer Night

 

 

I sit at last, free, under the summer night

The air is a dry, crispy, sweet bowl of warm soup

I read a chapter or two; then another and more

I clean my desk, to make space for an empty page

 

The table is too clean, my spine tight, jammed, stuck

I sit on the floor

With all its uneasy sitting, familiar dust specks,

It is homely

 

A bird has come outside my window,

unstiffening to constant chaotic movement,

Like me, free at last

A leaf has made the landing, heaving a sigh of rustle

 

I breathe with it, till the sun rises

The morning dew and the nightly air; they carry

a familial bond – made of scrapes of art, of solitude

Again, I arrive, at last, free, under the summer night.
