Mosquitoes humming
in the humid haze

still air
no breeze to sway the
arms of the ancient oak
that shelters us from
the scorching sun

Spanish moss dangling
like strips of grey lace

We pair
retreating to this
shady rest, away from
the green lawns and the
shouts of children having fun

White styrfoam cup
sticky hands and face

Together share
our snoball treat
trading mouthfuls
of shaved ice and sweet syrup
with spoon or with tongues

Summertime in N’awlins
like a sweet happy song
And I’ll catch that drop of nectar
that ran down your neck, to your collar-bone, before long…..

    What thirsty and lusty moment – and such raw expression. When your ‘metaphor’ crosses into action I could not help but to imagine including myself. Neat!

    This is a treat for the senses. Your poem saves me from experiencing the sticky summer of New Orleans, but now I want a sno-cone πŸ™‚
