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
like whispers of breeze upon my cheek
late summer textures twine with cooler days…the nights of open windows
Stillness returns – the moon rises. Moist air laces with night sounds as nature slips into the currents of sleep.
summers heat wanes sapphire blue on velvet sky bare feet in deep grass
moist air of summer wings grown weary from travels rest among cool greens
sharp edges, smooth blue golden leaves against complementary hue
Lengthening shadows pair with sheltering branches – the hush of a hawk.
Swaying in the breeze, translucent petals, backlit fired to radiance.
