Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, June 26th 2019 … sun bathing with link to dVerse OLN

Sun Bathing Sunlight's magnet pulls our clothes off as if metal. Skin burned in toaster. Our beach blankets lie close enough to cool wet sand to feel the wind's chill.

Sunscreen is poison; sunlight… Continue reading Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, June 26th 2019 … sun bathing with link to dVerse OLN
