While


Would you like to walk with me
along this path of words?

While the Astilbe
thrust their pink towers
from the perennial garden;


while the Pileated Woodpecker
cackles while hidden
deep in the woods;


while the cumulus bulge
white mounds
into the afternoon sky;


while the hummingbird
sips sweet liquid while
hovering on a blur of wings;

while cloud shadows
race across the fields
trying to catch the wind;

while summer quickens,
ripens, and opens
this invitation

to walk,
to watch,
to wonder.
