Summer Hibernation

Summer Hibernation

Returning to all that was lost
to sweltering days now passed
those clothes that were tucked
away in their snug piles
for the past season having
been too hot to consider

where are my gloves away
on a walking tour of the Hebrides
a little stiff from their excursions
the unexpected discovery of a
garment new at the end before
summer began in earnest
re-discovered born again into cooler climes
scarfs hats that no matter how
many you have collected
boil down to the same few
that your friends will recognize

before they recognize you.
