Light & Red

Warm sun
Like rain on my face

Arms open
Collecting yellow rays

Skin burning red
Hair bleaching white

So far away
Hardly spitting distance

One day closer
Six minutes late

Hug a girlfriend
Love her sisterly

Containers and lids
Grasp and salvage

Seal leftover smooches
Dwell on them later

Not over it when
There is nothing left over

Punch sponge
Permeate the deck

Mop up and sop up
Bucket and broom

Let it rain
In the light and day

Bleed blue
Blood red geraniums

Rickrack and lace
Tie it in a bow
