From the always,
nearest,
tree,
whose roots reach down
to the inmost core;

here,
from my hand,
I give three peaches
still ripe with Summer.

In my white suit,
beneath the glowing stars
that light the wish
and cool the brow,
I bring these flowers.

There is a smell
of alfalfa in the air . . .
Kittens will dream
of won battles,
and great safaris in distant fields.

A dish of salmon
fresh from the depths
of bluest lake.
Waves on shores.
Returning home.

Reddened Autumn.
Brightest angels
from the purest clouds.

The candle
still burning

through the night.

what a soft lovely write, John. I enjoyed the imagery, the taste of peaches.
