Indigo night sky
White clouds float by
As palms hang silently in the balance
And pine tree reach for the sky without a sound
The live oaks reach across the grassy yards
As the barely imperceptible breeze
Flutters a solitary leaf.
The stars peek out occasionally
From behind the white puffs of ethereal mist
The crickets chip steadily
And in the distance a peacock calls to it’s mate
The world seems at peace
At least for this moment
Sitting in the stillness,
In the deep midnight blue of a tropical summer night
I feel the heat around me like a lover’s embrace
As I lower my eyes, then close them gently
Repeating as ever, “I am. I am.”
