performing their duty nonchalantly,

feel the infinite and the resplendent blue of the sky.
the mosaic of colored leaves
down to ground in fall,
the stark and inner beauty of trees,
point to the spirit behind,
master’s invisible hands.
far away from human perception.
a silent salubrious evening,
over its serene mystery,
the spirit of eternity,
