She walks in bare feet
through dew-laced grass
naked feet on moist earth
and sighs with her whole body.
She watches shiny orange bodies
in green brown water
cluster around the bubbling water
lips kissing the water’s surface.
She watches as flying gold bodies
flit in to steal small black seeds
from tubular man-made devices
boldness born of ceaseless hunger.
She sighs into the morning stillness
inhales the sweet smell of whiteflowers
that perch on long delicate stems
under the cypresstree.
She quiets her mind
opens her senses
fills her heart with emerald light
and begins another day.
