Capturing sunlight

Capturing sunlight

To the forest I walked

and in the meadow where trees grew scarcer

the first dandelion flowers thrived

I picked up as many as my small bundled contained

and back home I mixed the yellow flowers with a deep red apple

an apple gorged with sunlight that sat all winter long in a cave

the fresh vivacity of dandelion flowers reawakened her

adding some sugar and a pinch of salt

I stewed them all, and let them cool

before capturing sunlight in a jar



About Erik Vincenti Zakhia

Dear all, I will share with you many of my poems, short stories, drawings and paintings telling of my journey of self-discovery and my reflections about life, love, art, spirituality, sexuality, kundalini rise, and twin flames. They all fall within the realm of Hazen. May you have an inspiring visit!
