A wind gust heavy-laden with the sweet smell of honeysuckle

Stirred the gray-black feathers of a robin perched

 On the iron railings of my balcony, chirping happily to its mate.

Another warm breeze didn’t stir him or me while I sat

In my lawn chair enjoying the lazy afternoon.  I sipped on a cold

 Glass of chardonnay and stared mindlessly at the cloudless blue skies

And the tips of tall green trees, communing with nature spiritually,

all while  listening to soft jazz.

 Yet another gust, this one roused me from my musing.

 It was the breeze of a sweet kiss at the nip of my neck that

 Stirred deep emotions, making me smile.

 I knew then it was Halftime.
