Open window romance

Leftover twilight
breeze plays gently through gray
of a metal screen (people
inside, bugs outside— that's

bedroom window.

Welcome cool
brings a snuggled
blanket; night's caress a
lover, fresh, without

The insects (outside)
lullaby, relieved by
birdsong before
dawn, with constant smell
of dewy green.

A sleeper so romanced
of wonder, love,
and verse.
