Beauty Blooms Bold

beauty blooms bold

with a sweeping growth

so great

yet tendrils turn treacherous

as the hours become late

il_570xN.442052788_idvq

in an indulgent dance

they engulf the heads

they once meekly adorned

il_570xN.489783911_fkb4

each prickly bite

 unable to satiate

the aching  hunger of a soul scorned

Plump Plumb

when curls unfold

limber fingers embrace salty hair

bound by the sea

through the earth

above the air

heaving hearts thrust blood out and around

as lips

once loose with language

slowly suck

breathes large and small

to fill plump plumb colored lungs

which swell

which fall
