Chlorophyll Highlights

Tender pink petals glistening,
The day's misty morning springs forth,
Like a kaleidoscope of hope,
Sun rays fragmenting through damp air...

Mag 63

Her tree lined canopy unveils,
Blue spruce sparkling upon the rose,
She drinks in the moisture of light,
With chlorophyll highlights she dawns.
