Tea Olive

Sweet scent, unseen, drifts,
Hidden small flowers blooming,
Whisper, “I am here.”

Evolving lives
Entwined
Branching through
Wavering sky
Swirling roots
Spread curling
History beneath
One blooming
Then the other
Together
Dancing in place
The feral
Embrace
Of unlikely
Companions
Whispering
Secrets of
Woodwind sighs
Sub woofer groans
High pitched
Dissonant squeals
The music
Of growth
Resonating
Frequency
Ultra low
Displacing
Rocks and soil
Blending water
Light and love
Absorbing
Death symbiotic
Nutrients
Transient
Spiraling
Long wave
Pulsing
Intersecting
Harmonies
Laughing green
Consensus ad idem

The humble Tea Olive’s
Shy flowers,
Veiled by her leaves,
Her delicious
Apricot scent,
Is carried by the
Drifting mists.
I stand,
Quieted,
I, also, am a tree,
Waiting,
Grateful.
Cool perfume
Flows,
Eddies wash my face
Eyes closed
I wait as
My Mother
Gently smudges,
Cleansing,
With her
Touch,
Soft as smoke,
Sweet,
As a dream,
Sacred,
This prayer.

Crows In A Tree + One Craney Crow On the Ground + Some Flowers That Maddie Likes To Eat + Yellow Petals

Craney Crows is the genus Uncle Remus assigned Herons and Egrets.

My batteries went dead as the Craney Crow flew into sight on her magnificent wings. The crows all swirled around, then settled again, all of the birds politely waited while I changed batteries.

I saw the crows flying around while at the gas pumps, so as soon as the gas tank was full I moved out of the way and went behind the gas station to see what I could see.  I saw a small holding pond. I saw a few moss covered trees full of crows and a flock of different lighter colored birds that started to settle, but were encourage to move on, tree service being strictly first come first serve.  I saw a few buzzards migrating.  There was a Masonic Lodge with a barren yard surrounded  by chain link fence.  Then the Great White Heron came flying into my vision.  I lifted my camera, the flying bird, the blue sky, the sun behind me ,,,, and beep beep beep batteries low beep beep beep and the camera turned itself off. .
