on a summer day in the leafy woods



The leafy woods shone

Like polished silver on that

cool bright summer morning,

A day with all its beauty

Remains a source of joy

even after a dozen years.


As I walked through

A narrow beaten path

In the dense leafy wood

Covered in leaves of

A variety of green,

Solace to spirit.


I came upon a sudden

Clearing, a circular patch

of brown earth surrounded

by towering trees, white mist

moving in the branches

Against a spectrum of sunlight


coming from behind the dark

Hill ranges turning unexpectedly

Like an oleander, from white to

Lavender to blue and violet

Pink to red and numerous hues

In between and around the obvious.


Music floated on the wings of wind

Blowing from all four directions

A captivating raga on the magical

Dawn, on a spirit’s awakening from

Sleep to consciousness, from

Untruth to truth, from death to life.
