Calm Morning

Snow glistens along this path on the mountain.  I make

my way through, enjoying the beams of light that filter

gently through the branches.  I inhale comforting

wisps of moisture that hang throughout the hills

and thickets.  I pass beside many small lakes and brooks,

noticing the vibrant birds that swoop their way close

to the surfaces.  Shiny lilies of the valley poke through

some patches of snow.  Off in the distance, gleaming

green crystals blanket the base of the sleepy hills.

Welcome To The Festival

Welcome to this whimsical gathering of lively folks

assembled in honor of your arrival.  Fantastic lights

lift up and shine onto your carriage.  Confetti hails onto

the scene and spreads throughout the amusement.

The crowd cheers with bliss and euphoria.  Sparkly flags

wave and send forth beams of wonder.  Sweet flowers

bloom along the pavements and shout their approval.

Youthful cultivators giggle, blow bubbles, and play tag

with each other.  Dancers swirl each other around,

lifting each other to new levels.  Golden petals and

silver leaves turn attentively toward the gliding light.
