Lily Speaks ~ A Haiku Series

The sun stretches west,
feathery rays of gold paint
wispy silken clouds.

Down dampened mud banks,
fingers clear a passageway
between the sawgrass.

From coral rock seat,
I behold the hidden pond,
As green herons moil.

Verdant lilypads
Whisper of serenity,
Promise of new dawn.

Dragonfly alights,
Luminescent paper wings
Flutter in the breeze.

Lily speaks of peace.
Her fragrance intoxicates,
My soul’s healing balm.

Black water ripples,
As cool wind caresses me…
I am born again.
