Nutured By You

Day 22

Prompt: Write a nature poem.

Nurtured by You

Under a day of clear skies,
with the sun dancing on my skin,
I pretended to be a stubborn alp by your side.
As your scent circled my nose,
I waited for your morning call to echo love songs in my ear.
With your wind up my back,
I could not rescue my own soul from your whirl of fresh air.
I had to amass my ocean at the brink of your land ---
for our souls to paste, then sow---
evergreens, dogwoods, honeysuckles and sweet peas,
side by side, in a row for eternal butterflies
to reap under the nature of our love.
