The Friendly smell of firewood at home;josyift 2022
That lingering scent became my only friend.
Where, by the burning flames, I wrote alone;
None cared to read angelic words I penned.
Take one more breath before your breaking pointjosyift 2022
and let it go – the myrrh of fortitude.
Open your eyes to what you see – it’s blinding!
These colored lights do color you renewed.
In concrete streets of waste and cheap cologne,josyift 2022
The steel denies the iris setting skies.
Where are the fields of vetiver, like home?
The red dirt for roots to deeply grow?
I can’t deny my heart still skips a beatjosyift 2022
Every time that scent resonates from you.
Oh Cunning pear of my soft eye’s defeat…
But you are my old news – I am now the new!
A little bee is buzzing by my headjosyift 2022
while zealous sun rays stretch along the bed.
My mind is bumbling far outside the hive
to think about you – circling ‘round my head.
Are you still out among the wildflower?
I’m already yours, no need to scour.
I’ll wait for you to come back, hot and sunny;
To come back soon, to melt my heart like honey.
