Give me the sun and a windy day
with gusts tugging at my shirt as if I'm blowing away.
I catch some extra gold when I'm bathed in rays
and I've got a couple thoughts about the end of May:
It's a sunrise made for lighter sleepers.
Watch the glow line, see it steady sweeping
golden hazes race down tree trunks
tasting breezes between leaves
that look amazing.
It's warmer than it's been but it still gets a little cold
There is sun up on my skin and distant storms are in my bones
If I'm alone, I'm roaming through the flowers
Or if there's showers I might nap and it might take a couple hours.
Snag a sandwich and a stroll in the early PM
where I can pick a favorite bird and pretend I'm just a friend.
Stop and squawk, or walk in flock.
We still got a couple of blocks of good weather
And nothing on the clock,
so we're headed there together.
Treading lightly towards greener spaces
in between the shining cityscapes
It's a big escape for city kids.
But it's a safer place for wild kin.
Find the smiles brightening
as eyes and strides both start widening.
I'm hiding in the hazy dreams.
I'm feeling great not being seen.
Behind the scene I'm chasing streams
of photons made away from screens.
So I'll take a breeze and a setting sun
and watch the colors bleed as the shadows run.
The sky's undone when the stars start to play
on one of thirty-one mellow days in May.
