shimmering wingbeats

summer is a wildly adventurous lady
skirts a'whirl & hair flying
she kicks up her heels with abandon
chasing butterflies & love
with a net of diaphanous allure
nights spent frolicking on the shore
while bonfires & fireflies cast a romantic glow
lighting longing in unsuspecting hearts
as lightning bugs dance above the grass
flickering little strobe lights in the dark
& her flesh tingles in the blazing sun
burnished by flushes of heated thought
caressed by warmth & afire in the night
wholly vibrant & alive
passion & potential at full strength
spontaneously unrestrained
avidity in every gesture & move
knowing around the corner
the beat will stop
& rhythm will change
so she gets in every dance she can manage
before the fall
sweeps her off her feet
