Spring, Late Afternoon

Sunlight moves like a river flood
that sets everything on fire.

Verdant green scatters beneath
incandescent foliage.

Byzantine rooftops are cut rubies
with diamond-faceted spires.

Sun-facing walls stand brilliantly tall
amid hedge-tops aflame.

A dragonfly’s wings are outlined
like the eyes of a woman on the verge of tears,

and a brunette walks by in halo.
