indian summer

haunting tunes
of unknown selection
played on a freestyle guitar
yellowed leaves
falling too soon
their fair host split to the heart
by some vague synchronicity
after all
thoughts are deeds
every moment
a tapestry intricately woven
forest goddess watches sportsmen
steady with her jaded eye
her gentle wiles stowed for sternness
sirens of the wildes
trading offers for higher pleasures
rain and lightning
drive them off
except for those
who strip their clothes
surrendering every pretence
including those forgotten
running feral amidst the empress guardians
myst upon hail struck waters
