Steps Bridge (25 March ‘20)

Like a wild herd as one
thundering over rocks
a crescendo interspersed
with the silent cadence
of dancing silver
glistens beneath infinite
observed by bees
as it engulfs stones in
a chorus of white foam.
Pebbles gaze up from bedrock
in quietude they rest
witnessing an indefatigable ensemble
roaring to its destination.
Daffodils lean serenely towards
whirling reflections
gently nodding their heads
to a subtler verse
in the key of breeze,
a bee lands to the left
ascending once more to hover near shadows
fallen from a storm,
casually departing
remnants of yesterday’s
exuberant opera.
