ember


Eyes stinging,dark sky summer wearing a smoke mask collecting tomatoes thunder rolling the sun is melting neon grafitti orange on the sky an ember that jumped out of the forest landing on the sky blanket too warm layer of wooly smoke billowing from all directions

The thunder jumps me as I am crouching elbow deep in that green tomato smell I pray please oh please quench the lightening before the sky itself catches fire.

The tomatoes softly drop in the bowl and the sky opened so gently there Raindrops that feel like diamonds soft diamonds, melted snowflakes abundance, little kisses on my sore eyelids hope
