Peggy Hammond: Into The Heavens

Image: Unsplash, downloaded ( 05.03.2023.


boulder serving as seat

fog lifting and laurel

leaves blushing red

under autumn’s bold gaze

peregrine falcon

floating above

riding currents

into the heavens

this peace

let’s take it with us

roll and pack it like a shirt

we’ll shake out to wear

tomorrow, pull it tight

against our skin as

the workday begins
