whenever green days
come to me
the frog in me sings
  forgotten pleasures
resurface in the pink bliss
of a blown bubble
butterfly flutters by . . .
distinctive, she returns to
follow her shadow
  the longest hour
slips past red
laughing at minutes
until the moon smiles
day's long breath
prolongs its bubble
