I Set for the Sun

January 14, 2009

I set for the sun with wonder in my eyes

Sticky sweet resin on my fingers

Ears buzzing faintly with your voice

I deciphered all the hidden meanings that morning.

The sky was alive with orange and pink

Thick purple scars

I walked for miles before the chill caught up to me

Shoe laces collect dirt and dew in the tall, early summer grass

I can’t keep up with the scenery this time
