Sun toasted cubes
Angels wear in the water
To wake the fins

Seeding cedar rings
Befriending treetop winds
Sow snowflakes

Seating, cedar rings
For fairies of the heated hearth
Sweep your oven Keep

The oaks chewed sunshine all summer
To spit acorns at the fall
Of leaves arriving

Squeaky squirrels at the bark
Trace a trail without fail
To hear the hawk’s cry

I learned by accident those three

will turn your screen upside down.
Oh, I'm going to wreak havoc and chaos
upon my coworkers with this little

I love it, and especially:

"The Oaks chewed sunshine all summer
To spit acorns at the fall
Of leaves arriving"

(I'm trying alt (+) ctrl (+) arrow magic yet... will try after another cup of jave :)

You must be trying to put me in league with those squirrels tracing up the bark with this side sliding screen thing. I have a hard enough time just keeping up with things with everything right-side-up. What a magnificent background. Too bad the comments block the most luminous part of it. I love the images and the magic carpet ride you take me on in this poem. Thanks, Paige.

I like the poem - its beautiful Paige - but I really like the new knowledge of the title. (My wife is going to be screaming in a panic over her pc sometime later today!)

Hmm... must only work with certain computers/settings. Do you use a Mac? I have a PC and this certainly doesn't work for me (perhaps newer comps?). In any case, beautiful poem, I much enjoyed. :)
