Aspect Ratio

She longs for marine layer 
 sprinkle, spray of sunshine
 azure seed of sea,
            sacred alchemy 
       berry bloom moisture on 
 salt-hungry mouth; 
             for thirsty stem 
 to stand on strand, 
 harvest hope.

      Thank you, Leah. I popped over and read yours, too, and liked it very much. Tried to leave a comment, but your feed won’t accept either of my email addresses. Your poem made me think of nurturing my kids, which was a nice twist. 🙂

        I had the same response. 🙂 And I had no problem leaving a comment. It’s so frustrating when you have something to say and can’t say it.

    I am always amazed that you can get so many of the words into such a concise piece, AND have it work so well.
