if I could have –

just one deep breath
of green mountain air

and a gently gliding wind
woven through my hair

with a golden ray of the sun
shining through my eyes

if only I could have this
and nothing but blue sky

for a mind – cloudless and clear
focused yet serene

to reflect nature’s harmony,
symmetry, her eloquent beauty

through the sheer presence
of my being – to express

grace and power – flawless
like a prima ballerina

like the queen our mother
I may only dream to feel

for a moment
in my finite life

what it might be like
to be as nurturing and fierce

as humble and supreme
as limitless as she is
