Living in the Gap
First Beebalm Blossom – Spindly fingers of Beebalm emerge from a clenched fist, grabbing for a slice of life.
Oreo Truffles – My teeth bite into a coat of white chocolate and sink into the mush of cookies and cream. The hardness of the coating melts into a pool of goodness on my tongue. This must be what heaven tastes like. For a mere two minutes I am THAT woman who sits on her duff, feet propped, eating bon bons!
Pine Cone- Sphere of tiny spiked golden wings stand in formation ready to launch.
Carolina Spice Sequel – Pine sap lay heavy in the air. A thick warm breeze intensifies its aroma and throws in a mix of sweetness. At first I think its Gardenia, but not sweet enough. Then I think its Lilac, but not floral enough for that. I realize the sweetness is similar to apple, and then the spice comes rolling out. No it can’t be….and oh yes it is – a second blooming of the spice bush! I guess it decided not to be outdone by Lilac’s two bloom times.
Dusk – Sun shuts the door, leaving her rose colored skirt behind. Moon picks it up and spreads it like a carpet through the sky providing a path for traveling stars.
Cardinal – A flame shoots across the window at an angle and comes darting back like a bloodied arrow.
Sirens in the Night- It wails through the darkness, ripping slumber from the streets. What ails the night? Why does it cry so?
