Winding westward, following Phoebus

His stamina starting to wear as he wears his crown of light

Everywhere clouds, a wash of white.


Flashing orange aggression

I wore a smile with red, white, and blue

Storm during the celebration.


Green Tulip canopy

Weathered hands cut a delicate pepper

Cicada orchestra.

Pink, soft, curving couch

Fresh brownies are tasted together

A spice that lingers.


Dancing shades in the breeze–

Is anything more beautiful

Than sunlight through leaves?


After the sun sets

When dreams fill the world

My mind lingers…


Past lightning fields

Across orange groves

In alabaster castles.
