Random Poem:


She wears newness like a prince’s daughter at dawn
to skip on lawns, skim lilac scented lakes.
Her autumn is far off, no leaves to rake,
while spring’s about to break out forever.
How cleverly she pulls apart my glasses,
dragged from where they balanced on my nose.
Knowing to appreciate brief blossom,
each should embrace the clarity she knows.
