Summer Vacation: Part 1
I woke up to a beam of sunlight striking my eye lids. I groaned as I shifted my body to my side. I blinked several times as my expectations of my eyesight began sharpening. I squinted my eyes at the alarm clock which identified that it was 10:15 a.m. It was the beginning of the weekend, Saturday. That disastrous place known at school ended 2 days ago. I wouldn't have to see the faces of those annoying classmates any longer. Summer vacation would seemingly be the same as the passed summers. All I would do is sleep in as well as avoid people as much as possible. I unhurriedly dragged myself out of bed and made my way to the bathroom to get freshened up.
As the lukewarm water fell from the shower head onto my shadowy brown hair, I speculated what I could possibly do the summer aside from being a pathetic couch potato. Though that was what U was most capable at. There were not many choices to make that avoided getting near people. I was out of options sadly...
As I walked out the bathro
MercyOh sweet God how the grassland
ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of
Spring Is this how you meant
for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love
you like that I think I've been
practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
