Supported In Nature

morning blooms
Maxfield Parrish sky.

Box of autumn crayons highlights
the hills behind my house
come, my love,
let us walk.

Leaves glow
in the low saffron sun.

Clouds dip their
toes into the bay–
shades of slate.

A storm approaches
I lean into blustery north winds
sting my cheeks
thawed by salty tears
I stand rooted
every swirling gust rids me
of the static in my mind
I lean in
supported in nature.

Full moon, nightlight
I see my path
through the darkness.
