A sea of green captivates my
sensibilities as I shudder beneath
a roof in my imagination.
Nature is putting on a show for me.
First, I have a meeting with
cats eyes that remind me of
the other side;
they effortlessly push
my gaze upward
and before I know it,
I am in the midst of heaven,
seething with attention.
Being there, I notice the birds
above me being swallowed up
by a sky that tantalizes my poetic taste.
Within a second I cannot see, I am at
the tipping point of my potential,
still seated, oohing and aahing at what great painters saw.
Beauty reigns over the land, and I am witness to something spread
upon the earth that clever men have tried so hard to figure out.
Like a hand letting go, or the final breath of a life well-lived,
I expand beyond the greatest dream I convinced myself of.
