ilk, light, metaphor, ocean, sea, storm, weather,
timeless, yet tireless.
Solitary stalwart sentinel
surveils undulating horizon.
Aberrant, achromatic clouds
pock-mark the skies, as distant
rumblings herald his adversary's
latest gambit in their age-old conflict.
The wrath of...

Honeysuckle blooms and between my teeth, I tease it
like nipples on a lover's chest, so sweet though milk
