In the midst of darkness,
in the skies.
Life is persistent.
The tree appears dark and looming.
It could use some proper grooming.
I want to take a walk between its legs,
Growing tall from the ground like giant pegs.
By its rules, we must strictly abide.
Imagine the secrets it must hide.
Come walk with me in its deep shade.
Through the fallen leaves we will wade.
A canopy of leaves above our heads
As we fall asleep in our leafy beds.
As I walk slowly in a daze,
Surround me in a purple haze.
I could fall asleep in this tent.
The smell alone is heaven sent.
The scent of lilac is filling my head.
I need to find an appropriate bed.
I will just sit on this bench in the sun
And enjoy the lights of the setting sun.

The setting sun brings an end to
a day of rainbows and soft wishes.
The moon waits
in the wings for its turn.
The twinkling stars hover nearby,
ready to follow its leader into the darkness.
The sky lowers its head in acceptance of the daily switch,
torn between the two heavenly delights.
ONE LAST BREATH
Down in the blue vacuum,
I’ll depart from here soon.
As I float down,
you need not frown.
This is where I want to be.
I will be finally free.
I hold firm against the tide.
Small fish gather at my side.
I feel lightheaded and free
I am now one with the sea.
I am hiding being green.
On this leaf, I won’t be seen.
Feet sliding in the dew.
Orange eyes watching you.
I bet you can’t spot me.
I am one with this tree.
