Summer Nap

Robins and chickadees
and birds I don't know
sing songs to each other
across the yard
Crickets and cicadas
call out for a mate
and the neighbor mows
his yard
Children laugh
and scream in joy
somewhere in the distance
but nothing stirs in the room
save a housefly
buzzing in the window
and dust motes
lazing in a beam of sunlight
that creeps
ever higher
up the walls
