brilliant

The color of sunsets

arcs from your center, sending

the same

rush of blood through

my heart.

come to the table

sit by my side

enjoy the feast set before you

hush

hush

Enter the veil

of the greens

and the grays,

look away from

the clattering

colors.

Turn from

the blare

and the jiving

hard hustle, hear

the blue voice

of the waters.

shedding

shedding

Breaking through silence

the heart sheds its walls, naked –

softening with time.

the return

From the days of

dying, those sad days

when shells broke

in nests

and yolks were spilled, when

poison fell

from the skies,

– from this near ending they return, an ancient presence –

to perch

once more

above the waters. Vigilant,

with eyes awakened

they gaze, seeing

far beneath

the murky waters.

some days

Some days, I don’t see

clearly. Edges blur

with distractions, floating

before my eyes like

duckweed drifting

near the shore, snatched

away by the current.

flickering

High in the canopy,

layered leaves

shift, showering

the path below

with gold.

flow

flow

So strange, how

time slips by, like

cool water

sliding

under the bridge,

making not

a sound.

mapping

Lines on the move

connect,

intersect, double

back, making

shapes that echo,

resonate,

forming a great

mystery –

beauty

defiance

July rays

rake

the earth,

scorching.

The prairie dock

thrives, its leaves

raspy and rough,

spiking

flowers

at the sky.
