Steven Riley: Topaz Camp Morning

Spring '14 TOC

The Man on a walk yawns

Facing the blue-framed sun

Its light strums the tight barbed fence

A melody of thorns and stones

 

Laughing children run ahead

Cresting waist deep about him

They dream of flying kites

Licking shaved ice treats

 

He bends, inhaling slowly

Brushing desert sand

Off freshly polished

Laced brown shoes

 

Remembering the day

He rode horses

On a beach

Cloudless sky, slight breeze
