Celeste Strides

Crescent wisps on rolling stones swivel bubbling ember to burn. Sizzling jewels on moss thrones, redwood embellishes withering fern. Showers of September rinse sunset in mellowed strides. Lustrous pink rivulets wince on shimmering green slides. The lonely squirrel rolls in bed to drench in soothing musk tide. Cuddled mist drizzles the red veil of fir seeds on the hillside. Fiery twigs write velvet songs on your pier of echoing lights. My tender soul on bridge longs to melt with iridescent nights. Hush! Golden sequins bloom in tunnels of moistened birch. In Celeste's gorgeous room, I witness our emotions perch. Our crimson desires fuse on dew-kissed bluebells. September begins to cruise on footprints of silver shells.
