Breaking Away

Written by: Christina Larmon

Blue,
Cold, 
and Wet crashes against Stone.
smooth, 
strong,
unmoving Stone cradles Blue in its mothering bosom.

Cloud, 
independent in its constant transition,
mocks Cold from above a cliff. 
Cold,
defiant, yet afraid, 
whispers desire to Stone. 
Voice cracks Stone’s beautiful exterior;
threatening lingering stains like a blackberry against a pristine white sheet.
Wet licks Stone’s cracks promising it will never leave.
