Poem for Peace

my blue-tipped fingers
stumble across
these black-capped keys

dashing to capture
a sweet moment
of peace taught
to me by the dancing
sunlight glinting across
winter-bare branches
outside my orchid and
crystal-cluttered window

and then I stop
and laugh

how silly to
be dashing
to capture

when all I
need do is
