In Dappled Daylight


with me

the lushness

of a lingering sleep…

and last night’s


― Sanober Khan, Turquoise Silence

In dappled daylight~
where fallen leaves
mingle with velvet moss

Here, time is soft~
lingering in radiant warmth
of a gilded setting sun

Heartbeat in harmony~
with every inhale
healing cleansing breaths

This restless spirit slows~
amidst nature’s sweet sounds
~Panacea for my soul

  1. Nature can be such a sweet and inspired Muse; certainly in your case it is. I appreciate where you went with this, pulling my focus away from the pandemic, immigration, white supremacy and corporate greed for a few precious moments; thanks.

  2. perfect setting to linger! Somehow the word conjures up serenity, peace, calm … to linger we must slow right down and so many need that right now.
    Thanks for a thought provoking prompt!
