On Summer Breath
The summer touched my weary, care-soaked skin,
My body sighed with gratitude and I
let go, and accidentally breathed you in -
as heady as the honeysuckle sky.

For Rithimus Divisa Contest hosted by Gregory R Barden
Rithimus divisa describes a rhyming stanza taken from a longer poem which forms a poem in its own right. This was taken from a sonnet called “Touched”.
