Billows

file-5 (1)Billows

by Carmen H Gray

Today I looked up and saw

Ribbons of white summoning my eyes

They reminded me how the time is now

My hot breath the engine

Forming billows of momentary exhaust

In my own expansive sky

For the ants beneath my feet

Today I caught that second when

His eyes met with yours

I saw the electricity flowing

Like those captivating contrails

Saturation Vapor Pressure

Over Ice

A mixture of luck and presence

And gratitude for being here in this now

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
