Voices in Humanism

IsIand Reflections

Curious rays of sun
peering over the horizon
scatter light through twilight’s perfection
dancing through lavender atmosphere
settle on whimsical waters
sparkling with enigmatic iridescence
mirroring a peaceful mountain
crimson, yet quiet
contemplating laughter of colorful fruits
rich with honeyed nectar
through plush and emerald fauna
swelling and sighing with ease
breathe life to an eclectic assortment
from padding wildlife to icy gale
the rosy island
nutures freedom for reflections.
