Slept among the soft flower’s petals.
Cushion of dew
the bright sky blazes from white morning sun
azure shadows stretch across downy grass
you awaken in that moment of that place.
Chirps, whistles, caws and tweets.
Sounds of a scurry, a pitter-patter, a rustle, a jiggle,
a drip, a breeze, a knock of a branch,
a slither, a slip, a pop and a shuffle.
Sleep among the soft flower’s petals.
Pillow of down
the bright sky hushed from a warm evening sun
ashen shadows fade from parched grass
you slumber in that moment and place.
