Gifts of a day

Sweet days of summer
Sultry days of haze
Silver spun clouds hang
Simple moments spent.
This heart-shaped world moves
As eyes closed I float
Water buoys sun drenched skin
Slipping into daydreams.
The gifts of bounty fall
Heavy laden trees bear
Tiny green orbs resting
Hidden like a secret within.
Scented air of grass shorn low
Trees below sun leave shadow forms
Cooling a pocket of moisture
Earth below my feet I stand among
The simple grandeur
Of another day.
The shadows grow longer
Cicadas drone fills the air
Insect crescendo rising, falling
As twigs snap below my bare feet
And I am one
Under blue skies
In this heart filled moment.
