Pretty in pink




sun spray paints my skin

not azure nor golden tan

but hot pink among the poppy reds

carnations, lavender, roses & baby pink

staining tiles, walls, sheets, every happy part of me

because it is springtime & everything looks

soft as an unfurling leaf, overflowing

with  blossom-seeds

i stretch pretty in 

pink, embracing

 beautiful 


season

  1. Oh, I hope that Sun Spray paints Galen's skin too. He deserves bright colors all around. He has done so much to brighten other people's lives. It is now HIS turn.

  12. Your words still explode with the graphics of your intent, good lord pinks are still months away here. Except in the garden of the mind which sits in the gray matter somewhere.
