Angular Slide


Summer comes on an angular slide

wary at first, she withdraws at the first sign

of popular acclaim

reticent as an aging movie star

she phones ahead books a place

and then arrives

oh so fashionably late

in this time of hesitant arrival

I find myself there but not

really there

as she is so quick to remind me

Not one for moment by moment awareness

I am reminded by one elegant as a swan

of meditative awareness

of the here and now

she is there always and I

like this years summer

tend to live

on an angular slide
