Walking with fear

in the face of

trembling color captured

while planning the fall


Impetuous fever


‘cross satin cheeks

while someone watches


Bitter apples

bite back

blood-stained lips of regret

while sandcastles die


Shedding armor cast


like warm summer rain

while riding the release


Thunderous music swells up

inside out

creating waves across skin

while the skies part


flavors and tones…
