Because this one makes me happy:

And On the First Day….

 

Little droplets of water sparkle like

diamonds on leaves—Nature’s small miracles,

like the rainbow streaking across the black

cloud in sheer defiance of the storm. LET

THERE BE LIGHT! And so we have light in the

form of a sleepy sun and shimmering

trees. Cabaret dancers—no, wait! Belly

dancers—shimmying in the first rays in

over twenty-four hours. And, thankful

for that shining light and warmth, we sit and

write poetry that may just be prose in

disguise as a nonce sonnet and marvel

at the grace of Mother Earth. Let’s you and

me go plant a forest of white diamonds

and whistle while we work the rich soil.
