waking up seconds ago
breathing in the fresh evergreen air
as the sun rose like a giant peach
stretching across northern Georgia’s slumber
endless sky filled with gold an rubies
as today may be a big surprise

slow moving morning 8am
realizing that I’m here in the moment
thoughts of her swimming hundreds of miles away
eventually washing away in the farmfields
lay hidden in the great smokey mountain valley

i rose from a flower and blossomed into bluegrass
sheltered deep inside her thoughts
her slender touch gently flowed like a creek
producing a silk feeling sensation
made it easier to make eye contact
and concentrate my motor functions
as the sun rays penetrate back and forth
for a while making it peaceful once again
and changing everything that still remained the same
