Dear earth, can you hear me?
It’s me, John.
Listen, that glowing orb
is particularly hot today
and my Swedish skin has
turned brown and crispy.

Do you mind if I lay
here for awhile?  This sand
is soft and comfortable
reminds of childhood
on laundry day – mom washed the bedding
early in the morning
afternoon westerly wind
uninhibited sun took their
time with a simple task
and I ran through open fields
and Indian grass, chased by
the neighbors dog until we hit
one last target, ending in a ball of
lemon verbena sheets.

We lay there until we fell asleep…
