Madrid skyline-photo by Ben Weinberg — August 2017

Morning cool like a blessing hand
soothes the sun weary city
in the soft light all seems fresh
charged with possibility
just on the verge of becoming what it so longed to be
the next step so close
green, still, freshly emerged
no longer dust coated
shimmers, eager, ready
awaiting the wind’s direction
seeking out the finer clues

traffic, muted
a busyness bustling toward appointment and rendez-vous
but a background track
a general hum and thrum
I picture them eager or hunched
on a million separate trajectories

and I wonder
will they,
can they,
stop, turn
wonder for a moment
and feel morning’s loving touch
