Song of Stellar's Jay

      in a forest of Redwoods
    the birds are all laughing
  and a mango sunset falls
over the mountainside

I breath it all in:
the long grass creates
a soft bed to bare feet
†† †the calm summer sky
†† † †a few clouds drifting
†† †and butterflies floating
††in slow-motion migration
I wish to align my vibrations
I follow deep trails weaving
††through thickets of woodland
†† †opening gradually akin to
†† † †the spreading of hands
†† †from the shaded cool
††dampness to alarming
oppressive bright heat
I reject defeat and
††it is here that I see
†† †purple blossoms lining
†† † †perilous paths winding
†† †now finally Iíve arrived
††at a steep little incline
washed out by the rain
I no longer feel any pain
I exhale the song of Stellarís Jay
