starting to feel it,
whisked in by summer winds.

in the glass 
an effortless concoction
of a dollop of madagascar vanilla ice cream
swimming in a pool of espresso,
or drowning
affogato al caffè,
as the Italians call it.

half of the family disappeared
to the other side of Europe,
one quarter busy at his summer job,
i work, organise & play in a quiet house.

i wish you warm breezes,
with love.
