Haiku #8

I stretched forth my arms
to the sky as rich sunrays baked
my brown skin creation-black

Wow, loving this and the picture...how are you Mr. Bess?

Cat said...

So beautiful! I hope you and the loved oned ones are well. Here we are all well. Happy spring may be coming soon. We had a teaser a couple of weeks ago, and now it is a little chilly again (highs in the low 50's) but that is not too bad. Soon enough it will be nice and warm again!

There's a kind of sunlight that I enjoy...not the hot, burning one, the mellow one, at 4:30 pm.

Is that your photo? It's lovely...being one with the land.

I like this,the words give you a lovely mental image and you sort of imagine yourself under a scorching sun - my brown skin glistening under the sunrays - love the way you did that. Picture works great too.

Zooms-
