Birth of a Song

He stepped into the meadow
and many dragonflies greeted him
in the lightly slanted sunlight

His Spirit frolicked
as the new song burst
fully formed

From his lips, from his heart,
and from his grateful Spirit

Sudden Turn

The path through
the thick woods
Took a turn
off to the right
And suddenly opened
to a broad meadow
Bright sunlight sparkled
off the wings
of dozens of dragonflies
