Two pine needles


It’s a windless summer afternoon on the mountain.

On a knobbly rock under a thick-barked old pine tree
exists a lichen and moss artwork in a hidden shady spot.

Today just two pine needles cross gently over this masterpiece
and swallows fly fast and sharply under small flag whistles.

It’s hot.

beautiful, peaceful and so amazing to see the gifts that rises in our backyard! I love the mountain and her skirts of white sand and azure seas - inspiring and a reminder to enjoy each day!!
