Sun spreads gold leaf dazzling
across dense green respiring
forests, earth living arpeggio
of parrots rise mezzo-soprano
whirling blur of feathers once
we saw, never once, so again
the theme like music played
major chord below notes alone
suspended in air, augmented
then chromatic half steps add
intervals opening, diminished
minor as clouds pass shadows
inverted shade, darkness fills
thick groves, branches uplifted
leaves stretch, for last beams.
