Mercury Is Rising

Mercury is rising
The crickets whizzing
I hear the hissing
As of a pan sizzling..
It is stark soundless
A landscape speechless
A visible  sweetness
Mingled with a moment
Idyllic and timeless
On the pine forest border
Whence the pathways meander
Through the hill and upward
Blessed shepherds in rapture
Flat and far s
Stretch the plains
wheat, barley and summer grains
Fill the true eye with wisdom
Give the weary heart the  balsam
Mercury is ever rising
And the sun, upward rocketing
And the shadows drawing short
i feel the season on mountain top
I stray hither and thither
A gypsy soul in mild weather
A tune of romance whispered
A grasshopper over there skipped
His wings flutter like a paper
From a pink story-line were torn
Where gently on a stone it lands...
Wild flowers, edible herbal plants
Grow strong under a high boulder
Safely nestled inside the stones
Giving aroma, and sunny reflection
A wee lizard stealthily snakes
Greenish inside a tiny hole
Between the rocks there is motion
There is life, there is a poetic action
