Those purple clouds of flowers,

sprinkled on a sky of leaves,

are lilacs blooming, bringing

to an empty room the scent

of showers and the stir of wings;

and yet the scent’s not sure enough this year…

and so our minds dilate the breath of summer,

bursting its flimsy and invisible balloon,

bringing upon us like a great eclipse of sun

autumn’s despite and gloom.
