air is especially fancy tonight
violet and green
a beatific palette of dappled light
both seen and unseen

my breath is deep, mind is still, and now
all is colour and chime
a local chemical plant, take a bow
for my zen inspiration respiration time

GUEST POST // A green ear somewhere in there… by M. Spahr

Appreciate appreciation
have you ever
found frogs lazily
leaping under faux moon
beams of gratitude
they’ll croak their duress
just the same

You have to listen closely
without touching
you have to find one alone
without having

It knows soon better than you or I do
A creature of pure motion
something that knows how to
appreciate appreciation
