A brooding mood seeks to engulf my soul
but on the cusp of conquest,
is deflected by memories of nature’s rarest hue...
The sudden glimpse of stunning sapphire in a field of flaxen corn
and soothing balm of lavender’s luxurious scent.
Dragonfly and Kingfisher in burst of aqua flight
darting across the stunned palette of serene summer skies
and azure mirrors of the soul echoing my love.
Sorrow slowly surrenders.
