in sky and water
every shade of water and sky
in the day’s blue

  2. SMiLes Dear Xenia These Blue Humid Scotland Skies
    Remind me of Spiraling Dance In Reverse
    in Athletic Shoes in Deep Sand After

    A Thunderstorm in
    Over One Hundred
    Degrees F

    Of Heat

    Index…

    Indeed Deep
    Spiraling Paw
    Prints i made

    And Very Tired
    And Heavy Paws
    By the End of Beach Pounding
    Afternoon Dance Delight Heheat..:)
