“Let’s get married quick & now”
said the sky unto the ground,
“and mix your green into my blue
making one, from the two.”
“But how could I catch your eye?”
cried the ground up to the sky.
“I have no sunsets, stars, or clouds
just myself, the trodden ground.”
And with a soothing wind of breath
the sky reached down, to caress
the grass & plants & many trees
that made the ground so lovely green.
And the Earth then trembled at his touch.
Her plants and coverings swirled in rush
until she was sure, his word was true,
and met him calmly, in the blue.
They married then, in a lake so still,
flanked by mountains, pines, and hills
where the ground is showered by heaven’s love;
where the water reflects the sky above.
Forever on, shall the two embrace
in the calm clear waters, of somber lakes.
