A Poem

a close-up of tall weeds in front of a setting sun

Skin is sensing the scintillating sizzle of summer sun,
Under the umbrella of undulating nebulas above.
Meandering mothers mooing in meadows amid this,
Magnificent Missouri morning.
Even the ever-engaging Earth emits its energy, I,
Remain relaxed in rare respite.
Troubles take time to tarry,
If I invoke the eidolon ideal,
Master of motionless measure,
Ending in the easy ebony evening.
