MOONLIGHT RIDE  wood sculpture by Candace Knapp

I have a beautiful flower
ripe with perfume
quiet and alone
in the forest deep.

So tonight
I will pull up my roots
and begin my moonlight ride
How delicious I am!
How subtle and sweet!
I will sprinkle my scent in the evening air
I shall gallop across the meadow
careen down hills
prance through the city
meander in great circles around the park.

I know I cannot survive
without my roots in the earth
but I have the traveling fever
and I want to find you.
Can you see me yet?
Do you know I am near?
I would do anything to make you smile.
