caresses from hot summer winds teach me how to breathe

wind serenading, She touches
tendrils to the tender face of a sun that exhales breathlessly, who
leans into the palm of Her thin hand;
She is a force of nature

She is a ball of flaming gas,
girlish in the complete cares of a restless air
so absorbed in the lovers song
to notice the flushing of mundanes below
