20 June – Elderflower breeze

Headed towards the river path
through a field of unremarkable grass,
I am on my way to somewhere
when here transcends just route to pass.
One step I’m not paying any attention,
the next stops me as if at destination,
compelled to pause,
to better drink the scent
of summer cordial
fizzing in the air.
Moving forward it fades,
as quickly as it arrested,
just like the sudden felt enchantment
of beautiful new ideas,
fragrances whispering “write me”,
lost to the wind if not caught.
