Serene summer nights!
No picture of the soft breeze,
Nor of the sound of falling water,
Nor of the tiny fireflies that accompany me
As I stroll on the deck…
No mention of the heartbeats
Intermittently racing and calm
Like thunder in the distance
Delivering lightning strikes of a coming storm
And yet urging I dwell in the stillness
Before it comes
No glimpse of the flowing mind
Drifting with the evening breeze
Soaring with the birds
And flowing with the stream.
Summer nights and fairy lights,
