Glistening grass blankets
Bird song choruses fill the air
Breezes gentle and cool dance
Lazy warm Sun rises
Golden rays stretching out
Bunnies dart place to place
A world spilling forth follows
Puffy clouds slowly meander
Noises begin to carry
Peace valiantly holds firm
Til the mist of morning drifts away
Tomorrow it will be back
Someday’s it seems too long to wait
Mist of my dreams swirl
Spinning like a kaleidoscope
Am I looking back
Like the stats in telescope
Or forward in Crystal ball
Happy blue skies pave paths
Tall trees throw twisted shadows
Nothing is as it seems
Everything is exactly as it appears
Lines of sight tug gently
Filaments of thoughts resist
Delightful mess spills across fantasy
Which parts will I miss?
Which parts to cling to?
Time slides through hidden hourglass
Slowly I realize what never was
Has always been waiting with what was
What impression have I made?
Have I left a mold for precious metals?
Footprint squished into a riverbank?
Did I choose wax or steel to cast from?
Will I be lucky enough to be a fossil?
Will the next storm wash me away?
Time is no test man passes
Is an anonymous legacy, a legacy at all
There are places
Special enough to share
Walking within other steps
Showing vision to another
Watching the world fill them
Falling in to yesterday
Butterfly or moth
Searching for flower or flame
Slipstreams into fact
Tumbling letters break words
Nothing held or possessed
Like shadows in the dark

In the peripheral vision of your eye
Waving from my attention
Arms out stretched
Fingers feeling in the air
Like shadows in the dark
Lingering memories pull away
Rushing up and over
Only to crawl and slither

Many thanks for everyone following here!
I have an alternate site titled Project21words.
It’s time to share the fun. I need guest posts.
Everyone is invited not matter where you are or what you do.
The only constraints here 21 words or fewer. Or two images.
Combos of the two things are good as well. Short and sweet/whatever else.
Poems are easiest. Microfiction, haiku, Tanaka, random blackout…
Email something to firstname.lastname@example.org SD, xZuzana fc 3 om
I return an invite.
You create what you wish and in words it will be waiting for review.
Images need to be sent via email with explanation of use.
I will post without editing. Only thing maybe be an adult warning if it seems necessary to myself or yourself
Longer posts considered for Coloring Outside The Lines as well.
