I read my life
in green grass
and see my dandelion
children play
where promises grow
in the brown eyes
of sunflowers.

Mother fed me gold
first star wishes
as Dad looked down
pretending not to notice
how I grew.
I lived behind my face
dreaming green dreams
or in the mirror
reflecting back
the question,
tendrils climbing
into half formed answers.

I rubbed into my image
with flowers
a stamen, pistil, stem,
then turned to see
my shadow on the wall
grow dim
trying to be grace,
turned again to find
the question searching
out my face,
and all the while
the grass greenly played me
in a poem.

The poem lies with me now
in the green grass,
partaking of spring’s conversations,
listening to the sky’s comments,
looking under rocks and in windows,
summing up a sigh,
telling and retelling a smile.
It sang into a self
the mirror’s image.

I did find another one that needs to be draped in Passions sunrise for this poem reflects as beautifully as a sunrise on a summer day.

Martie, I enjoyed playing in the meadow of your mind.
