Celestial Mirror

Celestial Mirror

The water is a Celestial mirror today—
Reflects sun and later moon and stars.

Drops of dew on blades of grass
Mirror my house of blue with roof of gray.

A white tail deer tip toes toward me
Like a gift then startles—
 leaps away.

Blood red berries hang from the bough
By my front door.

I don’t want to leave this world I adore
Yet I know other worlds are in store.

I see their reflections in the water

All around me.
