– between the clouds lie thoughts

the roar of heaven confronts the lawn
brings with it heavy footprints that carry
some other sea planting firmly before
lands solid the oak and festuca blue
provides the mirrored view thundering
intersects air and earth with fire
leaves it mark in puddled hopefulness
where young birds search for food
their song filling the trees with thoughts
roots that dig deeper to steady the day
provide the watcher with a place to rest
lean the heavy arms and melt into the nook
shelter from the blooming luscious show
captures the snapshots of forgotten smiles
where dreams may come in purple shades
such thoughts of earlier days dancing
the wind melts into the vanishing drama
cooling brings such fanciful expectation
that heaven grace another tender touch
