My mind hums within

by LeeAnn Pickrell


My mind hums within

After Brian Thomas and Omar Khayyam

My mind hums within
your hour of grace.
I rest
in eucalyptus
and cypress.
The sunflowers fold
and dissolve. Each song
has its moment
in the circle of light,
a voice taking
each life in a
last embrace before
the shadows
I have watched
in your arms
become clear.
