Please, don’t worry
the earth is still here ~
the wind and the sky ~
they wait for us

This indigo sky ~
on a clear starry night
gives way to a gentle dawn ~
held in a whisper blue
in a silken sunrise

overhead light bearers ~
create an ever changing kaleidoscope!

carilion bluegrass
berry plums &
flamingo pinks ~
mixed in famous hues & colors

moving and flowing like
a beautiful new scarf
placed over my head ~
quietly and with ease,
folding into the curves of my day

I close my eyes
I see the end of day,
rich in golden light
now shining on Lake Ann’s shorelines ~
velvet golden shelves
frozen in limestone ledges

The tops of the hills light up
catching tree tops
in brand new bold strokes ~
and painting grand
golden swaths of fire

light keeps moving west
and west again
as it falls into shadows ~
echoing back to a honeydew sun,
filtering light moves these woodland Hills into evening

I can hear love songs,
deep and ancient
Skywinds meet me on the rise

There in twilight
I emerge awakening
to see my day refreshed
in a silent prayer ~
while the world sleeps
yet never still
