Summer Sidewalk

1

It won’t fry an egg,

but when strong sun heats it through,

it will blister feet.

But in the dewy dawning,

or post-rain, it cools.

2

Lounging room for cats,

scent-monger to sniffing dogs,

joy of skating kids.

3

Weeds sprouting in cracks,

grass runners climbing over,

wildness creeping in.

We play at keeping order,

but concrete daunts not nature.
