Shades Of Green

variegated leaves,
I look down on the tree tops

shades of green

suddenly I find my son
is graying at the temples

pouring cream

I watch as my coffee turns
the color I like 

fading pink dawn

the first tomatoes
with a bloom

in the garden, a lizard
becomes part of a bush

thinking of Eve
the way she moves me
when she blushes








to the top
