EVERGREEN

Among the trees …you and me,
together lovingly
bristled breeze and evergreen
The forest. . .mammals and birds…
in peace and harmony
You and me, our eyes colored green
Along the brook, a storybook
reflections of long-ago dreams
Amongst the stars,
Venus and Mars
galactic streams
and forests of Evergreen

THE BEAUTY OF NATURE

Evergreen Trees

eXCERPTED FROM
MOODS OVER A SEPTEMBER MOON

The morning comes, the chirps of sparrows in the elms breezing in through the half-open window.

The sun is breaking, a glint posted upon the chrome plating of the end table. I turn over and onto my side, and look into the sleeping eyes of Wendy. Tender is she and more so, her doll, who is protected under the tight grip of her surrogate mother’s arms.

I look up and on the couch, poised in a hopeful dream, is Trish — her feet peeking out from under the worn afghan, toenails painted with specks of glowing moons and rainbow-filled skies.
