A Solitary Walk
Swirling waves shimmering in air;
a floating veil dancing through a shaft of sunlight.
Captivating shades of green once lost
reveling in a moment of silent pause
beneath the alluring canopy.
Touch a crystal melody along a stagnant lake.
Words as leaves swirl in the wind
fall forlorn in twisted piles lie beneath a weeping tree.
Still between lips and teeth, pristine moments close to the heart.
What are those words hidden deep amongst blanketed leaves?
Waiting to burst from forgotten seeds,
sprouting roots, forming buds with
every drop of long-lost dew?
Life speaking of love in silent refrains of color.
