“Lifting Branches” dVerse #97

On Sunday, peace rests in
rooster’s crow or a cat’s
paw lifting branches, like
a novel holding dog-eared love
at the bedside table.

Words stream fanciful
in vortex, where a child’s dialogue
speaks secrets in flying parrots
on colourful wings.

A song of unaligned magnitude
lives in me; I raise my hand to
meet my fingertips, where
the world waits for sleeping bodies
forming under the shade in
solitary daydream.
