The sun fights through morning clouds
Diffusing his light in vanilla shades
The pepper tree holds its breath waiting for more
And He conquers.
Grateful oleanders receive a lateral sunbath
Leaves outstreched, soaking the rays in
To dry remnants of nocturnal rain
Snails chomp on dandelions
Robins banter and flirt
Pepper trees and mimosas compare notes
The lily-of-the-valley blows me a kiss
Of fragrance just because
Pale blue butterflies flutter in my heart
Joy lands by my coffee cup in a giggle.
