So You Sit Down

I was deliberately not composing, but later I made the invitation, and this is what showed up.

Lupine blooming, and the stars hidden 
behind three hours of daylight
 
but you can imagine 
how good they'd be up here. 

Grassheads rippling 
into the wind's strong hands. 

Trail about as narrow as 
your body sitting down

so you sit down

become 
packed clay 

and desert parsley
become cloudshadow 

ripple to the wind 
yourself. 

It hasn’t got a title yet. I’m open to suggestion.
