sweet relief pink grapefruit halves on ice

smacking my lips after a pale ale dog-day heat

sunrise on the raspberry brambles juice-stained fingers

her face flushed the new yorker hails a taxicab

heart chakra crystals tumbled rose quartz and topaz

sunburned soul-mates swim in the moonlit bay

golden scales flash through the coral reef

vegas chapel wedding rings and flamingo shaped neons

a blushing bride the first night of their honeymoon

afternoon stroll a narcissus and pinkstar flower bouquet
