futzing around with this idea i've had for a while, it's probably the third thing i've written about this idea... whatevs... enjoy :)

Child of Nature

The gray of his eyes

Is snowflakes in the winter

And frost on the edges of the window

The warmth of his smile is

Summer breeze brushing

The fireflies through the muggy night.

His flame-red hair

Is the death of leaves in fall

Gently wafting down to go to sleep.

His brown brown skin

Is the richness of spring earth

Mild softness, taking in my touch.

His face is the harmony

To the melody of nature

And he lives and dies and lives again

Just to break my heart.
