Spring Reminders

The air heaves
with scents of
dirt and
rain and
earth.
The heady smells
remind me
of Oregon springtime
and Florida showers.
One, so light and cool.
The other, pounding and hot.
Like two different loves–
the air is at war with itself.
One is kind and
sweet and
safe
while the other burns out
like a freshly lit match.
The scents of summer
linger in my mind
reminding me
how you spent your last night here–alone in my arms
wishing the sun
would forget to rise.
