I am drawn outdoors today
It’s a rounded kind of morning
Full of spring circle migrations
Smoothing out edges
Healing to my quick turn days
Just folded for an uninterrupted rest

Lavender peonies stand and wave me by
Yellow warblers high in the piney woods sing me their love
Roadside summer daisies show themselves
Smiling white crowned faces in bright yellow ribbon hats
Telling me even though it’s not quite summer yet
Everything will be graced by this day

When was the last time I sat alone and rested my eyes?
Allowing sunlight to shine through closed eyelids
And listening to sky winds traveling across the cove
Carried in high tree tops
As they work their way down ancient paths
Where earthen red changes to forever green

Sunlight filters through dark leaves
Layering the day like some new world immersion
Turning shadows inside out
Painting the day with a delicate brush
Ever flowing through this sky home
Bathing my soul as I await in scared pause
