In afternoon shade one is detached
dreary, listless, waiting for the rains
to come, the last days of summer
content here upon this park bench
from out of sleep: all roads lead to
this center block of trees, the wind
in their leaves, tides in sessions
redemption and confession resonate
from a distant shore, my orientation
in time present is broken, lapsed
in waves of reminiscence as I let go
for a moment and am lifted in the air
moved by fans of palm, stretching out
trusting completely in this levitation
reflection canceling the gravity of cares.
