Ivona Sophia


Summer Street - Poem by Ivona Sophia

on a summer day on my street
soft asphalt preserves footprints,
green leaves panting on trees.
the air, still like old paintings
resounds with children’s laughter.
on my street the dusk cools
lonely chairs, tables, glasses,
moths entrapped in streetlights.
on the benches under jasmine bushes
youth in love
in the summer night, my street
matures.
