Blooming cosmos and snapping dragons
In a patch of sweet serenity;
Passion flowers and
Beautify the face of Mother Earth.
Summer rains bring
Occasional wet wings
And a tipped halo or two,
But the angels toil tenderly
To the music of
Against the rocks.
Lilies bob as fish and frogs play
Hide and seek
With the dragon fly;
Brown spider tirelessly tends her web
Among the terra cotta;
The hum of a Kubota in the distance
Lulls the senses.
Ahh… dreaming away again in Martha Stewartville.
