The marmalade moon

spreads across

the still warm

crust of earth


by the midday sun


The sentimental smell

of Springtime’s in the air

as the taste of today

lingers on my tongue

and sweet dreams

fill my soul


I’m hungry

for tomorrow

  1. Nice description of the toasted crust of Earth with marmalade Moon spread across it. Today was great weather for a walk. Although I remember it during the winter, I need to experience that “sentimental smell” to realize how much I forgot.
