Poetry Friday009

In anticipation of summer…

Delightful la dee da

Unexpectedly you appear,
in wild and lusty profusion —
floating over the wayside grasses
like exclamation marks or
polka dots on an apple green summer dress —
As if our passing somehow matters
in your tentative lives at the edge of the interstate —
That we are worthy of spontaneous celebration.
So, you clap your hands in abandon,
then lift up your lacy skirts
and dance.

Lesley-Anne Evans
