PURPLE FAIRY LANTERN

 

20160401-IMG_6003

 

Within the silent clash of blades,
shy scarlet globes within green stems
hide with their heads bowed

if you know where they live.
In the thatch of another world,
snallygaster crane flies become

fairies within the grass forest
we part to share the light
of twenty-one springs together

in these hills with generations
of cattle, with all the wild gods
and goddesses as our witnesses.

Within petals frayed,
the seeds—small devices
enduring despite us.
