Melbourne Summer

Posted on Monday, December 22, 2008

Relentless wind and dry heat
trams roll by my aching feet
heavy limbs
an ocean within

A day full of city sounds
nothing like a small town
strangers smile
a friendship begins
caffeine conversations
let the summer in

The last orange beams stretch across the sky
bursting at the horizons seams
a Melbourne summer is all I need

Sundown in the park
swapping stories in the dark
skin that stings
from all the good things

I’m a little girl once again
catching beetles in my hand.
