It’s brief but it’s necessary
and it never goes unnoticed around here
that all of a sudden and all at once
lavender is wearing the wind
green is its greenest
birds chirp to the rhythm of your heart
time laughs at your jokes
rocks from mountain tops crackle softly while crumbling
and Fuji apples taste just like you’d imagined
and because it doesn’t happen very often
you’re always looking and hoping
for that short and critical respite
where it feels quite good to have what it is
be exactly the beauty that you needed.
