royalty

you, my dear
are royalty

even on days like this
when your heart
is hollow

your soul still spreads
golden and glowing
across the fields

on days like this
the grass must still bow down

the world
kneels at your feet
as its sun
passes

moving
these simple blades and stalks
under the caress
of your eyes

as if blessed

"under the caress

I like the near-rhyme and the overall sound as well as sense...

Paul--Gosh, I don't think I noticed the near-rhyme...you have an eagle-eye for these things!
Thanks for the comment, I appreciate it--and your visit, too!
