Syringa, part one

DSCN0876  Syringa

Fields of purple and yellow wildflowers
Tall pine trees, cold water

Walking on an undulating trail
the smell of warm grasses and bursts of sweet floral-scented air
the hot kiss of sunshine, the cool embrace of shade
Dappled light in green and ochre

splashes and shouts, yells and barks
soft voices and raucous laughter

slithering of mud-brown snakes
ascending trill of unseen songbirds

crackling fire and Texas S’mores —
marshmallows, chocolate, tortillas

Sudden storms, sideways rain
And stars that wink while we sleep.
