I was walking this trail
holding strings to many
helium filled balloons.

a trail runner asks;
how come you are walking
with all those balloons?

I’m a wildflower, I said;
can’t you tell,
I’m connected to them.

he looked at me
not sure what I was —
I just looked back.

I can feel the flowers
reaching out
touching me halfway
down the trail.

Nature’s sex show
open to the sky
in every way.

Lusting over the appeal
addicted to nature
seeking satisfaction
with more frequent visits.

Your beauty will fade

A time nature determines

Never in my eyes.

Tell me what you think art is — if you can

— ask a lot of people — and see if anybody knows . . .

You ask me about music — I like it better than anything

in the world — Color gives me the same thrill once in

a long long time — I can almost remember and count the times

— it is usually just the outdoors or the flowers — or a person —

sometimes a story — or something that will call a picture

to my mind — will affect me like music —

(A record 108 degrees yesterday. Today, [106 degrees] the second hiker in three days was rescued  from hiking trails leading from the park. These hikers are in their early twenties and obviously exhibit a high degree of risk taking. )
