Sugary crystals scribe each form, as a curtain of leaves falls.
amid the swell of clouds the moon sails, riding currents, cascading with a froth of stars
Within layers of petals a sweetness lies, drawing me in, captive.
the rain falls, welcomed by the soil, beading leaves with crystal drops, feeding the creek, the birds – all living things.

the darkness of night, the light of the moon the intermittent glow of the lone firefly, seeking it’s mate.
cool blue center. Breathe the green light of the forest. Absorb the calls of birds, the cellular silence.
like whispers of breeze upon my cheek
form a plume in the sky limned by the bright face of the moon
