Nascent

There is a scent
Of sun and summer
I’ve tried so desperately
To capture
This year it has come early
That smell of cotton
Crackling
Under ultraviolet slivers
Stretched on bedsheets
And a heady breeze of greens
Simmered
Slowly
Southern
This new nostalgic mix
Of daylight crisp
And earthy meal
I’d like to wrest
Such better words
From wafting feel
But all I keep as I breathe deep
Is nascent possibility
At best
