In the gold-washed glow on green

Of July’s vivid evening blue

I watch your spinning fall to earth

Through softer air than day’s has been

Your path to ground is freshly spoken

The soil-drawn spiral just for you

Entranced, enspelled, entwined

My sight conceives of your conception

In six seconds of descending grace

    • Thank you… I had to find a short way of describing a living, unique passage into a new stage of its life – one in which the whole universe watched, some of it through my eyes.
