The heat came
& with it those balmy summer fragrances
that tantalise the senses.

After meeting with a dear friend today,
a quiet walk to the rose gardens,
where for now
it's the peony crowned queen
of all that she surveys. 

Lovers kissing on a bench,
distant shrieks from the fairground nearby,

Latin rhythms floating thick across the air
from the spot where people have gathered
to sway to the sound of salsa.

Summer in the city.
