Ten years later

Maya Angelou – thank you for the incredible beauty you shared with the world. This was inspired by you, now it is dedicated to you. May you rest in peace.

The silence of a summer scene
thick warmth wraps around.
White cotton layers
strands in the sky.

Seagull gracefully gliding
effortless floating wings.
Trees standing stoic,
wood and leaf puncture the air.

Still, blooming buds
fill the air with fragrant beauty.
Evening’s timeless tranquility
disturbed only by thought.
