Awash with Color – a SOCS poem

For Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday where our prompt is: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wash/awash.”Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Bonus points for using both. Enjoy! Wildly appropriate considering that after 6 weeks of no rain, not a drop, we are suddenly awash in thunderstorms lol. I selected a picture, set the timer for five minutes, closed my eyes and this is what surfaced from the watery depths of my imagination. 😉

sunrise on Kauai

The sky awash with flaming hues
of a crimson dawn
coarse sand beneath my feet
as I dig my toes in
shifting my weight
and flow into yoga poses
my mind settling into
the ancient rhythms
of sand and sky and sea
tropical breeze blowing
through my hair
wash away the burdens
that were never mine to bear

Til next time ~still kinda irked about not being a mermaid ~JP
