Trade Wind

I want to thank Alozade at https://paintdigi.wordpress.com/ for the beautiful artwork he created for this poem “Trade Wind”,  it’s beautiful.

 

In the Summer you are

A Sahara sunrise,

streaks of earth tones

across the  copper sky.

Your eyes are  deep wells

where I am shipwrecked

in trade winds,

swept under  wings of

golden eagles, a gathering

of majestic birds.

When I am near you

my sigh is  the hiss of a cobra

my body the heat of

the desert sun.

  1. I enjoyed that so much! (*goose bumps in a positive way*). A rather compelling poem attended with a wonderful artwork by Alozade!
    Holly, I love it how you “catch” me with your metaphorical style of writing or when contrasts that you perfectly chose are able to still heighten emotions. All your work is causing a vivid emotional reaction! Great!
