Peaches & health

Do not take anything for granted — not one smile or one person or one rainbow or one breath, or one night in your cozy bed.

P.S. I was recovering from a really nasty flu when I wrote this. There were 3 or 4 days at the beginning I truly thought I might not make it. This journal entry was the day before Thanksgiving. And oh man, did I really freakin’ mean every word of this. Even more so than usual. –tg, 2015

Sky-happy

Foggy heavy-gray teary-eyed low-hanging
snow-stuffed melancholy winter clouds

Impulsive wayward turbulent thick-swift-dark
tempestuous hail-angered storm clouds

Sprinkling lighthearted fanciful breeze-drifted
rainbow-nestled April-hued springtime clouds

Enormous white-fluffy fairydust-fringed
frolicsome sun-illumed carefree summer clouds

Thunderous intense restless rain-soaked
lightning-streaked July-dyed monsoon clouds

Azure-skylit sunglow-slanted edge-gleaming
white-silver billowy contemplative autumn clouds

Vivid vibrant blissful dawn-lit joy-beamed
daybreak-florid sunrise-tinted morning clouds

Aimless airy midday-lazy wandering listless
mountaintop-floating leisurely afternoon clouds

Amber-ablaze day’s-end-pink ephemeral-amethyst
evening-welcome smoky-embered sunset clouds

Lambent star-flanked luminous moon-halo’d
glowing shadow-painted skygazers’ night clouds
