A Beautiful Summery Evening in Spring

A Beautiful Summery Evening in Spring

Joris Lenstra

The evening is so warm it’s an invitation to stay awake
Its blossoms spread their soft perfumes
Nature prepares for her great birth-giving
While I enter the kitchen for a refill of my coffee

From my room comes the rumbling bass of the speakers
The Invisible Man waits open for my return
At this moment in time I have a cupful of hours
That I can spend as I see fit
An elderly black man comes to my mind
Happy with his life
Humming in his chestnut rocking-chair
Observing the world from his porch
And I let these hours glide through my hourglass like honey
