I’m falling, falling for you, entangled in your crisp and shapeliness, newfangled light and heaviness. Underneath I hide the quiver of my chin, where smiles reside. Innocence plays upon my lips, cerise, the color of the maple, of Maurice — you see i try to please all of my friends, too many to count, to many attend. I used to climb each limb - each branch and lean into the lemonshine, the ground unseen. The scent of caramel, burnt sugar, spice. Nay - likely ice-cold rain and paradise. The frond is gone, the hoar frost near of heart. The soar, light whip of float - the eye in part travels with wind and scent. The boa wrap, variegated color — I take a nap. Snow-white bungalow - an arctic igloo. I must be rescued - ash soot up the flue. Serendipity through the heap. I’d been dreaming - up through the leaves I leap. 8/3/2021 An interesting Couplet Sponsor: Funom Makama
