Softer Issues - Poem by Pat Richards

The softer issues in life
A pale buttercup glowing deliciously
in the hand
A caterpillar shimmying over earth and grass
The spider cogged in his cobweb beautifully
The gliding watercolors moving gracefully
Cascading freely on the paper
Melodious, mellifluous harmonies
Titillating emotions, exposing sensibilities
Tuned sweetly, warmly, softly
Listening carefully to muted, gentle
Air whisperings diffused with tiny
Insect noises - minute currents drop a petal
Can a cloud be heard?
Words are liberators rescuing confusion
Searching for and finding
The softer issues of life
