SUNDAY IS FOR POETRY: Body Art for Cosmos

Raindrops in light
Drench my newborn body
Soak my heart
Ruby red streaks
torso, legs, feet
Orange crush seeps
mouth, chin, neck
Lemon saturated hair
Falling emeralds
cover bosom
Azurite tumbling below
Indigos mingling with
Balletic gravitation
to untouched bareness
A nova in the darkness.

So sensory. I felt it all over! And it brought to mind my 2 little screaming newborns. You are so talented!

I put a comment on your second post, I don't know if you receive e-mails with each comment placed, but this is to let you know to go view it.

Rain is falling all around,

It falls on field and tree,

It rains on the umbrella here,
And on the ships at sea.
