Treasure Island

Aria Siren


Something Like Summer


Take me

And let me hang

Loose

Dip me in

Dark

Let it drip

Off of me in

Slow waves of

Molasses

Roll me over

Graves smelling

Of bogs and

Fireflies

Moths laced

In my hair and

Nibbling on my legs

Fly me to a

Treetop

And drop so I can

Stretch under freckled

Skies

With breath smelling of

Wings and

Caterpiller crawling

Sighs

    Lovely. I adore being part of the earth. I try to get outdoors as often as I can to poke around and explore the countryside. You have painted a mastepiece with very few brushstrokes. Wonderful. (Report) Reply

To go and interfere!
