Sunset, July 13th

Two ladies are walking
at the hour of always
this citrus summer evening.
On glittering leaves they step
between shadows on the ground.

The path is splashed wide by heat.
Trees melting into either side
at the edge of the evening.

Children’s voices echo
– A bird calling.
They stop for a moment
for time to catch up.

Then on again
