Heavy Footprints

Our idle breath hung onto the air
Matching Water’s glassy stare
As the bird songs’ giddy notes  
Danced beneath their throats
Beneath dancing rays a collected daze
He greeted the pond’s lazy gaze

Our glued eyes slowly climbing 
Gradual lingering through heartbeats timing 
A brew of brown sporadic spots 
Milky eyes still lit with thoughts 
An emerald underside sparkles clearer 
The lily pad peers a collective mirror 

Our eyes imploring, wanting more
Stretching our legs towards the shore
The trees vigilant, a wary gaze
As we stumble through nature’s maze
A warning ripple with something to say
Cautious eyes yearning for another day

A step too steep breaks the quiet
That’s all it takes for nature’s riot
And with one last deepening breath
The frog leaps into nature’s depths
Now she holds her secrets down below
We’re not sure if she’ll let them go
