Gladness Sings

lily-orange-closeup

Here we go again.

Like a mystic pearl diver

I delve into the silence,

Into the sweltering summer heat.

The sunlight paints my eyelids

A luscious orange,

Veined with crimson and gold.

The porch swing sways—imperceptibly, almost.

Between the yuccas and buddleias,

The breeze is dancing…

Light and heat and sound and motion

All one swelling, heaving tide,

And I’m sinking, softly drifting,

Letting go…

Thought ceases.

Stillness deepens.

Something blossoms.

Gladness sings.
