to pollinate one poppy
or ten thousand stars

Seven Springs Ago

Photobucket
 

Seven springs ago
I knelt in awe and wonder
where bright flowers bloomed.
 
Where bright flowers bloomed,
I worshiped as a pilgrim,
seeking holy signs.
 
Seeking holy signs,
I felt as though a feather
had swept clean my soul.

poppies splintering the sun
into shards of light
