Our Lord reaches down and kisses the earth softly.
Angels cry tears creating melodious mist on strings,
garden spiders create to entertain tourists for lunch.
Astounding smells of infused beauty melting before me.
Tuberose absolute mixing with gardenias and gliding,
stroking smooth skin uniting with sweat into glorious
aromas of coconut and sun caressed bodies – chatting.
Swaying in the wind are seeds that replant the lush soil.
Nature is telling stories of life to deer that tread wisely,
nibbling while watching squirrels take forage from birds.
Dangling cocoons move as caterpillars plan their escape.
Tearing at their hardy, cloud-white confinement – hungry,
Willow oak leaves will make the perfect meal for months.
Japanese magnolia and Pear trees bloom with fairy dust,
envious of each other’s hues feeling slighted by the pansies.
God has dressed these spring ornaments in glossy colors
from His heavenly palette of love, which makes creation weep.
