August Morning Light

Laced Seeds of Grass

August morning light,

like the ancient bird of myth,

resurrects from the 

black ashes of night,

Immortal wings spread





laced seeds of grass,

gold-faced florals,

red migrating

hummingbirds that

soar through the great

bird of myth’s light

production wings,

this August morning.

Soil-rooted plants

bend and bow to

this moment of

a billion years

of life


while human-kind


seeks dominion,

blind to the wings

of an

August morning light.

—Charmaine Coimbra
