A bucket of color, a bucket of fruit;
A feast for the eyes and healthy to boot.
And some dipped in cream look like mountains with snow,
They taste like the nectar that only gods know. 

The lady beside me smells sweet of perfume;
I stroke her soft cheek as a song fills the room.
I say to myself as I’m falling for her,
My senses are simply five kittens that purr.

Spiraling Up

Sunlight touched,
Delightful flower
Up in flames.



Whose Woods These Are, We Do Not Know

We have none to keep;
Piles to sleep.



In Everything

Because I’m afraid
To be me.
