Breathless

The soft honey sun

oozes its brilliant light

upon skin sprawled out

below the sky.

 

A game of hiding

lost once more

with sharp warmth

and bee buzz.

 

The kink of limbs

bent back twice

and twice again.

Beaten out against the grass,

 

Pressed down into the earth,

and like the stars

pressed upwards.

Breathless,

both breaking and broken.
