Struck by summer’s match

Sweet centerpiece smolders bright,

Bees humming a hymn

Aspen   2 comments

There are countless allies of the aspen tree~
A single white ray caught, clean and bright,
        in a misty web
Milky veins of quartz trekking through boulders
        sliced by ice
Gleaming lines of waterfall cleaving old mountainsides       
Sun-bleached femur of last year’s doe
And thin ribbon of moonlight slipping softly 
        between dark places
 
The aspen has long been my ally, too. Its smooth white trunk
fits exactly into the curve of my palm, leads me upward and roots me earthward.
Just as good friends always do.

Wherever I go

Willow catkins and crickets

Make me feel at home

Hugs the ground, a sun-warmed hearth,

Brings Heaven to Earth

What do you suppose

is captured in your eyes?

Glistening crescent, a waning moon?

Fireworks of gladness at your daughter’s door?

Or . . .

Clouds and peaks chaptered in panes,
a uniquely tiled mosaic
