Mother Orchard’s Playlist

frames this effort.)

a hundred miles below
at tasks of watching
blade-striped
bees
crawl
into foxglove bells,
half-filled with dew—on a good
day
there is
lavender.

 

lightly settled in

a new moon, washing the
winds while we work
enchanted
to good deeds & kind
words, pulling evergreen
thoughts
from
Mother Orchard’s
silent shadow.

witnessed here
by the waters
of life—we are
harvested
in gorgeous
sunlight.

“What She Deserves” ~ Ursula’s Sad Day Playlist

 

Salva Lopez

By the water of tears layered
in musical subtext,
like a helmet
this sequence of songs protects.
Songs to grab the heart of a listener;
songs enchanting,
shifting in their manner,
offering a doorway
to understanding.

Music like a helmet;
to have such lovely,
shiny fragments swirl into some
shimmering whirlpool let loose
to heal.

She lifts a hand
to shield the glare & covers
the whole Universe
instead.
