Summer In The City

city_by_cadmey-dxa9v81The sun shines in a mist of steady heat
down upon the heartbeat
of sleeping city streets.

Soon, the traffic will rise — tempered
as it grows in size
steadily drifting through the warmth
of morning’s sunrise
into the shadows of overcast trees
where singing birds fly

and soon there will be the joy in a child’s eye
awakening the silence of urban playgrounds
with joyous cries

shifting time through the beauty and magic
of nature’s surprise

as summer in the city
sighs –

a new day .
