sunlight sparkles

sunlight sparkles off
of nothing crossing
a clear blue sky,
wind bent trees
whisper to each other
gathering forces
preparing to march
against the forming
armies of squirrels,
foxes and raccoons,
this is the day the
woodland creatures
rise up and retake
the land that once
was theirs

our way

watch dolphins surf on chartreuse clouds
see pelicans skim beneath the moon
observe whales breaching through the starlit sky

let the imagination run as wild as it was born
turn small ideas into grand designs
write symphonies on the backs of paper plates

run through a grape juice sprinkler on a hot august day
count the eternities we linger over a kiss
fight back the angels sent to take us home

these are our lives and we want to experience them in our way
