Song For Reyna

Her name means pure and clear.

She is a child of the fields and tree lines,
the creek waters smoothing
granite and sandstone she palms,
reading rock braille
she rests upon.

Her eyes, a thousand blended
greens of May,
become the leaves around her
nesting scarlet songs:

she climbs branches,
pads through the season
as a great cat,
through taller weeds the color of riches,
the color of her.
