Smitten with Wind

Green tree leaves

smitten with wind

turn upside down

as if asking their belly to be tickled


Off in the distance

a wood thrush whistles

his song of few notes

a concert to any who will listen


Along a distant ridge

porcupines ponder

their destiny in doubt

shafts of sunlight are swindled against bedrock


Atop the nearby mountain

turkey vultures soar

carrion the prey

perhaps one of natures finest moments


Under emerald canopy

a vixen tends the kits

who frolic without care

beneath smitten green leaves above
