  • Deep summer, and time pauses.

    J. V. Cunningham

    still summer evening
    the whisper of a fountain
    white lotus blooming

    chittering of birds
    drone of distant propellers
    the evening flows on

    pale moonlight outside
    everything peaceful now
    a far away train!

    sitting quietly
    thinking about galaxies
    the soup boils over!
