At rest in the deep grass
all urgency sublimated
by the sun’s blissful touch.
Heavy lidded, neither asleep
nor awake,lost in reverie.
A green warmth enshrouds me
and I sink dissolving
into the soft siren of the earth
which draws me to its velvet bosom.

I float ethereal and free
weightless and ignorant.
Time stands still.
It has stopped.

And, then a clear voice, a breeze
caresses my face
and I hear the birds singing,
the water flowing…
