Pasture Princess

Lips
honeysuckled.
Fingers tipped
with trumpet vine.
A pretty rock
mine and secret
as the language of the fireflies.

4 o'clocks
slowly pursing
purple petals
to a kiss.
I'm brown and barefoot;
pasture princess
of all of this.

For Ella's prompt at Real Toads

To lose oneself in nature and find oneself again is a definite necessity.

So you've been a cowgirl for about 18,000 years. Clovis girl on the half-shell. Pure and all yours.

'secret as the language of the fireflies..' that is just perfect. As always, your images cut to the bone of things, living and breathing on the page.

Your poems always create a reaction... this is so sweetly beautiful - and Mama Zen clever.
