You used to be living,
breathing
vividly on gray morns
catching butterflies between your wavering breaths
and aligning them with the sunrise.

The day used to be cynical
as you,
weaving suntinted skylines
ridden by sunbirds
bearing fresh tunes in their throats;

It wouldn't hurt a weary
traveler
to stop and squint
at skies so saturated
he'd trade them
for the concrete streets

he called home.

very beautiful. I don't know how, but this reminds me of back when I was moving states the first time. it's very sweet. I'm not much of a critic, so I don't have anything bad to say. very good job
