On the Sly



Sneaking in from the side….

Tossing seeds like elegant diamonds….

The dappled sun rays

prepared for a full on assault…

Sending infantry from the right…

with full knowledge…

That the Earth’s natural arc…

Would eventually allow each shred

of golden brilliance…

to reach its

intended target…

And delight the flowers…

that had been faithfully waiting for this
