can you sense me noiseless in midair
between long grey hovering moss
for only cypress moments live there
time slides off my round hips into light
hummingbirds toss nectar impishly
rainbows play hide and seek out of sight
hay plays a tune, crickets spin a yarn
sweet whiffs of hay encircling me
God’s vista smiles with ardor from a barn
