Back to Normal (A Follow-Up Poem)

Caprese: chilling
Red wine: breathing
Tropical air: blowing in off the Gulf
Love: rested and renewed
Returning: home.
Thin layer of darkness: dispelled.

    • Thank you for noticing that. I am an eternal optimist and always expect the best outcome. I am not oft disappointed. I hate leaving a piece with the idea that I am hurting, or someone else is, or that I (or someone else) is helpless. Thank you, really.
