Girls In Summer Dresses - Poem by Duane Robert Pierson

A girl in a summer dress
turns hot into cool,
sweat into sweet,
steam to chilled mist.

She stirs a breeze
in the hot still air.
Deep in my mind
smoldering coals fire
a sensory eruption.

She walks as a cloud
of seraphic passion.
She moves like a ripple
among lily pads
on a Monet pond,
calm as a pink explosion.
