That Feeling

Blustery wind rolled off the ocean
into my skin with whispers of cool
hauntingly possessing me to the full,
and I carried it all day wrapped up as
electric juice sluicing through my
pulsing veins in rhythms of blue,
while the sky shone paisley and I
was iridescently alive to everything.

  1. I love days like that. If the fall, I call them Skittering Days because often leaves are skittering along, blown by the wind.

  2. Paul, I love days when I feel so alive and everything seems more vivid. Very often it is in response to the beauty of nature. So why ever spend an entire day in front of a computer screen? Your poem reminds me why not! ❤
