My aorta beats in golden poppies, pulsing down slopes to pool in a bruise of purple sage. Though my eyes gleam with lemon marigolds snow caps of porcelain lupine melt on my lashes, undulating in a quiet tempest of periwinkle asters. Beneath a bluebell sky the sun colors my cheeks with the blush of primroses as monarchs lilt like birds of paradise among velvet morning glories and a shy alyssum breeze caresses my emerald cloak. 3/26/19 Marathon Qualifiers Contest Mark Toney
