I love this prompt. Something interesting always comes out of it. So here ya go. Have a good weekend everyone.
Like a redwood.
Golden marbles that fall over the brim and wildflower
honey, the sound of a quail,
Like I am always backlit, arched backs and the laundry room,
riding bikes through the rain
Like a mandolin.
A prehistoric river flowing below you,
bubbling and glowing, how the pine complains as the wind is blowing
Warm in October, groaning in the stove
Like me, I’m burning,
an early dusk.
I am made of dust, a whirlpool
cooled by the midnight
for love’s sake and always
taking the game trail, my hair down, a bath.
Like I am made of moon.
