National Poetry Month: Summer In Spring - Poem by Michael Skinner

waking to summer heat on a Spring day

it is still dark and the birds sing to a moonless sky

and the air conditioners which had been still for the best of a season

are in full throat again


the sounds of the highway are beyond audible reach once more

I opened the sliding glass door and felt that the air had cooled a bit over night

so we had locked up the heat in side with us and kept out the refreshing cool air.


Lighted day revealed a restless sea.

Wind up, my chimes won't stop ringing...
