gold and green

has the sparkle too soon
gone out of your eyes? just
find that western sky when you can,
the glint of gold and green,
the leaves can only shine back

and they'll put you right,
nature always follows through
and it'll put you right.

Your poem expresses my sentiments so clearly. Nature is my balm, my salve. Your use of enjambment punctuates in a way that adds emphasis and meaning without detracting from the graceful flow.

oh Kim, you leave the most thoughtful comments, thank you so very much. i admire your frequent homages to nature in your writing. i am also glad the enjambment worked with the piece as well. x
