1652



age old tree stumps rest
along the rainforest trails -
moss covers the rocks

❧✿❧

midday heat -
doves roost motionless
in the grass

❧✿❧

view of the mountains -
the coconut drops seller
picks up her tongs

Carpe Diem #722 buried in moss



buried in moss
and ivy leaves, but from within
the tomb, a faint prayer

buying a cookie
even the ferns are withered
at a rest stop

tired of spinning
the cat takes time for itself
and washes his face
