April May Dance Until June.


April May Dance Until June.

April's golden tresses
grace willow trees 
and bless forsythia tips
near my mountain porch,
my heavenly perch.

My dog catches zzzz's
paws moving to 
squirrelly-cued dreams,
but melted snow rushes
faster to the river
flowing towards valleys below.

Clouds almost touch my world
misting pastures,
while a rainbow
bends to color
their gray and white canvas.

Summer slowly ascends
slopes below me
bearing the scent
of honeysuckle and
devil's paintbrush.

I remain a speck of flesh
a pigment of imagination
on God's incredible palette,
trying to capture his marvels on
these pounded, ground up remnants
of some trees I've never climbed.

Author notes
written by a cabin I used to frequent
when I needed escape from the world at large,
things seem much smaller on a mountaintop,
as far as the world's troubles go.
