Quiet Moment

25 Apr

breathing

Fresh pine flavors spring’s footfalls

as winter cracks and melts

in warm rhythms

pulsating like deep breaths

 

Undertones of blue slate and cream

mark passing clouds

in an ocean’s expanse

of mountain skies

 

Prairie grazers coats shed thickened fur

like soft dandelion tufts

swept in currents over the rocky divide

 

As a day once bright and bold

is invited to rest by dusk’s gentle hands

colors of daffodil sun rays mute to lavender

before succumbing to a delicate ink black approach

of a rounding stone moon’s curtain backdrop

 

Silence’s volume is turned on high

as heads lay to sleep,

drops of light spill out from sputtering celestial fires,

and what once in the heightened bustle of a single day seemed dire

now dissolves on the tongue of a quiet moment
