And the wind is simple.
A simple pleasure,
Bestowing the smell
Of cotton candy colored flowers
And lucid lilacs
Upon us.
The sky is a pasty blue,
Brushing its reflection off
In your smiling eyes.
The sun grazes the tips
Of your hair.
Highlighting the mound of brown
In a sun-lit caramel,
While the wind brushes it off
Your face
And into a whirlwind
Of wild fire.

You hold me
Against the sidewalk.
Pacing your steps,
Intertwining them with mine,
You reach for my hand,
Tugging my fingers tightly
Into your palm.
You brace with me against the wind.
The simple wind,
And the smell of fresh
Racing beside us,
But never able to cross
In between.
