Lavender Spikes And Tender Smiles.





 Lavender spikes

Crowded with bees.
Hot sun
Bringing out the sweetness.


Piecing the world
Together
Moment by moment –
Following the most tender smile.


Always the essence
Most intense at edges of things.
There….
That’s the place to go!


The moon serene
Secure in its place
Shifting our water to and fro –
Wheat ripening in the fields.


The cat comes to play
Offers me her soft belly
Then her claws
But we both know

Its only play
