Sweet Ozone

——-

salt stung air

floats on a breeze

brushing like feathers

upon my cheek…

—-

The palm fronds whisper

their secrets

as the trees sway

in the approaching storm…

—–

Thunder bathes

the shore and the

birds go into hiding….

—–

I turn my face to the

sky…

taking in the last of

the ozone sweetness…

Drinking the thick air’s

sugary nectar…

Till the storm surrounds me…

Soaking me in light

and bright wetness…

jolting me with energy…

opening golden eyes…

Till my glow is not apparently

different…

from the flashing…

clouds…

above…

  1. Wooow sooo vivid writing I can image all this in my lungs, on my skin….

    Drinking the thick air’s
    sweet nectar…
    Till the storm surrounds me…
    Soaking me in light
    and bright wetness…
    jolting me with energy…
    opening golden eyes…

    your poems are so hmmm so hard to describe cause they are so good… Now I found a word they are ALIVE. 🙂

  2. Insane good write….as already stated…alive and electric…you have yur own ‘wow’ ending today. A vivid painting indeed.

  3. Well, as everyone has said so far, this poem is very much alive! It jolted me! Again, I am in awe of your ability to empower nature with your words and connect them to human emotion.

    This was such a vivid poem. I could see you there, while the feathers brushed and pronds whispered, while the nectar came forth; I saw the birds seek refuge from the storm. I loved this, Sir D. Perfect match with the take-me-back-in-time photo. Inspirational….and fine job of teaching us nature’s beauty. Love your blog….as you know. Hugs and light and love. Sam of the green.

  6. your poetries make me realise there is so much more about nature that I haven’t noticed. And that’s saying something as I am a keen observer.Nice one yet again david!
