the Colorado sky is vast

her mountains bare

but where her breath caresses fawn colored slopes

leaps to the eyes gold-apple yellow

stirred into streams of translucent green


Mother Earth has gathered her grainy blankets

thrown them loosely into the air

their folds and crevices lie

die into the embracing sky

whose blue descends to rush and froth over laughing rocks


last night I lay on the midnight grass

beneath a gold dappled fairy tree

each leaf was edged gold shimmery

glimmering spider-like intertwined between as sea of stars

patterned lacy snowflakes hung in black velvet
