Caught In The Web

At sunrise I create life: cool breeze
patting green leaves to subtle symphonies
tweeted and cackled and chirped whistling
the golden light spills through trees glistening

a red-eared slider claims indigenous
rights, climbs through pond muck, slow diligence
to rest near a car tire. I endeavor
to watch and warn the beings who never

see the fluttering of wings caught sticky
in the perfect weft. Appearance tricky
impossible to capture with my lens
ambrosial essence of dawn depends

on this sweet intent to breathe. I arrive
beyond my first year of grief still alive.

Inspired by: Essence, Ambrosial, Endeavor and Indigenous
