Grotto

by Ruhig

grotto

Unshaven blades of green
Wave a sigh of relief
Under the weight of dew
Cascading from the sky
To thirsty roots
Reawakening Spring’s most
Abundant color
Tickling my toes
While thick mists mix
Dawn’s first rays
Into purple vapors
Dancing with fairies
Fleeing to hidden homes
Across placid surface
Leaving small ripples in their haste
This is their place from dusk till dawn
And my aching heart
From the fluttering away of sleep
Till succumbing to exhaustion
