Soft layers of delicate petals

Ornately displaying themselves

To the godly golden sun

Swaying hither and thither

Beckoning the bees to visit

Bursts of color to contrast

The sapphire sky

Pregnant with possibility

Of impending fruit

I like the receptivity of this season

Far away from the bigness of the world

Shrunk down into a tiny lush universe

Leaves unwrapping themselves quietly

Like the sweetest gesture of an open hand

Reminding me to absorb a honeyed briefness
