Poetry Tuesday - vol. 2

By way of explaining some of the poetry I am writing lately:

These Days

These days,
long, sun-drenched,
smelling of sunscreen, salt, chlorine, sweat;

These days,
baseball caps, swim shirts,
sand-squishing toes and
cannon-balling clear blue;

These days,
I paint
not in oil or watercolor,
moments forever on canvas.

I paint words,
nouns and verbs and
oh, so many adjectives,

Aching to capture,
to hold,
to preserve forever
these days.
