A Symphony in a Breath

Your Daily Theme  [Figment]

for June 18
 
It’s Only Natural
 
Get inspired by nature, and build a poem or story around something from the natural world. It could be something as majestic as a mountain, or as simple as an acorn you found in your backyard.

Stepping out

Of self-imposed quarantine

Something seemed

A little bit different.

The air was like frigid water

Thrown in my face.

It tasted like mint strips

Melting on my tongue.

It smelled like grass,

Freshly mown and alive

With the crystal-clear water

It was fed.

It felt like every cell in my body

Went from flaccid to

Kool-Aid refreshed turgid

In the time than it took

For me to draw a breath

Like water from a well

Or a painting

With ice blue, lime green

Lavender and yellow.

So there is something you can’t get

On the internet

After all.
