POST 185:Queen Ann’s Lace, fragrance, sultry, August, Maine, South Carolina

by Carol Bass

FIELDS OF LACE

sultry August air
steamy wet heavy
sweat forming
biking the dusty road
away from heavy traffic
into open silence

breath of gods
floating over grasses
fragrant clouds of Queen Anne’s Lace
covering the universe
chilling me in the heat
suspending me in nirvana
