wooded nature

(prm)

elevated breath
between lips
emitted
swollen thought
past eyelids
seeps
crowded clouds
to vast windows
cling
feathered choristers
carry songs
on their wings
gated fountains
belated smiles
worries
with wonders
wash away
trials
climbing colours
blossoming vines
tickle the fruits
in the forests
of time.
