Azure Veil     September 2, 2009

do you see

spilling creek has captured

captured blue sheath

sapphire gauze

that once cloaked mistress sky

oh do you hear

sky's laughter her glee

watching azure veil

once wrapt about her unruly clouds

fill with breathing silver rain

indigo colors replacing argent stain

heaven's cascade earthward bound

azure veil now spilling liquid jewels

over thirsting ground

gathering in shiner's home pools

waters converging ever downward

edged with leaf medallions

ancient granite funneling crick

sea hundred miles away

luring sky's transparent azure veil

liquid flowing endlessly

relentlessly forward

downward journey

bemusing you and me

oh,

oh do you see harmony
