One Last Kiss

nature

Hazy green horizons

Gradually dipping

Into foothill valleys

A flutter of wing

Interrupting chirping twitters

And lazy zooming insects

One brilliant, metallic beetle 

Bravely fumbling along a path

Of pine needles, pebbles, and twig

Bare-breasted I sit

On a cliff perch happily tasting

One last kiss of summer.
