Red/Green

May 19, 2012

Fire breathing

red
down my neck;

sleep it off,

dream it down

then

enter lightly

the green foil

of level depth.

Originally inspired by this prompt at Every Day Poems, but the photo above was the view as i wrote it. Somehow the two images merged together in these few words.
