summer

lift your face
in the light before the dawn
while the birds sing of life
and the insects look for mates.
feel the sun crest the horizon
warming as it climbs the trees
and leaps to the roof
only to descend the horizon.
the insects still search
birds are still singing
in the light before night
lift your face.
