summer shorts

sunrise is at six
temperature rises too
sleep becomes a dream
wind tickles the trees
their laughter cannot be held
leaves fall in mute mirth
butterfly flits by
drifting past branches with grace
smoke follows closely
end of hammock moved
tree limbs no longer block stars
clouds start rolling in
shirt smells of mesquite
from barbecue earlier
change requires effort
