Oasis

Lingering respite
Under a cool prickly hedge
From sun washed landscapes.

Enjoying a meal,
Wine, cheese, fruit. Satiated.
Drowsing while noting

Butterflies flitting,
Bees and flowers making love,
And Ladybugs too.

Rest and contentment,
Gathering strength for final
Fragrances of life.

The Sower V

Soft refreshing rains
Bringing an earthy fragrance,
Thirsty life responds.

Seeds awakening,
Now stretching, breaking their hulls
To reach the moisture.

Sower standing with
Face raised to drink in sweetness,
Wash away sadness.

Children in puddles,
Water and mud everywhere,
Joy on their faces,

Thankfulness for all.
