the layers of petals a sweetness lies. I’m drawn in, a captive.
the rain falls, welcomed by the soil, beading leaves with crystal drops, feeding the creek, the birds – all living things.
the earth opens once again to the emerging of leaves, the opening of blossoms, a quickening of life
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
colors overlay – a tapestry woven high above the river’s bend
late summer textures twine with cooler days…the nights of open windows
