Ash leaves luminous in afternoon sun
Green boundary dappled and bright
Spots of shade for humble blossoms
Red, orange, pink, and white

Eternal breaths of wind give way to
Softness of a baby's cry
A symphony of cymbal leaves
Gives life to painted sky

Azure blue and green and orange in
Water, pine, and stone
Redwood trio sings in stately
Silence of its home.
