like saltwater
in my lungs
like swallowing the sea
swimming to you

come home
winter breaks like ice caps
crashing down the mountains
bursting the banks of rivers
like unruly children
giddy with snowmelt

from the valley
crisp gray skies melt into
rose and violet cognac mornings
the thick creamy air
pregnant with rain
leaves petrichor in my mouth

heady with the smell of loam
i run through the meadows
picking daffodils and hyacinth
as the brittle summer heat comes ‘round
baking my skin into strawberries
is that lazy old dog
basking on the porch
in the new sun
not quite hot enough
to ease his
arthritic joints

the mornings are heavy
with the sounds of
traffic and baby birds
frost on the lawn
and a chilled breeze
lurking between the hills

all the windows
the burrows and nests
are flung wide open
Something I found and am fixing.

Critiques are welcome. It's a work in progress.

I think it needs more connective tissue and to be less bland.

I'm an active, outdoorsy person with an incredible lazy streak. :P Also I want to be a surgeon.

Oh and, you know, just to get this out of the way: I'm gay. Simple as that. ;P
Thank you so much for all of the comments, favs, and watches guys! Really. I wish I could thank you all individually, but this will have to do.

Much love. :heart:

You helped that old man upstairs wake with a tumeacent glow! Be proud.

Lol. Well considering we mostly had sex in the afternoon, it's only from his nap. :P

Oh, the best time for a elderly gent to wake with a tumescent glow.
