Mel’s Monday Musings: July 26, 2021

My mind and heart are so full right now. Art, love, Olympics, you name it.

So here’s a little poem I’m working on, and then I’m back at it:

fireflies and waterfalls,
birches and aspens
and your hand in mine

salt breeze on warm skin,
sun sinking into gilded sea
and kisses like a penitent’s prayer

the first sharp edge of autumn,
clear nights lauding familiar stars
and a lifetime of loving you
