to envelope

and unfold

one in the same

my tears fall silent

clinging to forgotten

woes and they drift

endlessly away for all of eternity

shaded lilies

roam the valleys decked

with gold

pouring from the sky

the sun surprising the earth

with her gentle caress

an awakening.

smiling,

she stoops to collect

the daisies

and treasure them

next to her lips

‘marvelous,’

she whispers,

eyes closed

heart singing the fruits of bliss

timeless, we gather round

anticipation amped to

fighting levels with greed

we toast to shades

of days gone by

to the torrent

that is to come

sweeping us off our feet

to gently put us back down again

reaching up to dust the lips

of inevitability

we are human, you say

fear not.
