I am

I am drunk on sky
sipping too deep the twilight
& swimming an ocean
not of water and salt
but bliss

to drown now would be
to meet a heaven
I already know

***All Bruce’s fault

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  2. I love this, Susan. It puts me in mind of Mary Oliver, my favorite poet I think.Might want to think about this for the contest.

    • Oh! My goodness, I have not read her, but I just did a quick Google search and I think I should, as I am now entranced by sleeping in the forest.” Honored that my words reminded you of her, and will put this one aside for that! Thanks so much!

    A precious moment that be. I’d like to ride such a wave again one day. Enjoy!

    Hahahaa… Now Bruce sure has some explaining to do (or not). Now whatever he has put in your head must really be working. But let us agree, sometimes daydreaming is more realistic and sweeter than reality. The lines in between deliberately pale for the dopamine to kick in… Lovely
