Delicious – Poem by Ali Grimshaw

What happiness can arrive
when sunlight's retreat paints

leaves cherry crush, berry swirl
butterscotch eye candy

walking through an ordinary Monday
your hand in mine, we breathe the awe
street lined masterpieces
colored by a lack of chlorophyll

less of something  
created more today

  1. Delicious, enjoyable imagery, Ali — and perfect last lines! (I meant to comment on this earlier when I “liked” it but got interrupted. Finally just getting back to it to enjoy it again. 🙂 )
    Hope you’ve gotten through this rainy week okay. We’re just north of Portland and were under a flood watch for 3 days. Crazy!
