A pale sky watches my face,
waiting for me to open my eyes.
A gentle breeze tries to rouse me,
but only manages to make me smile.
The whispering trees enter my dream
and remind me of the ocean.
My eyes open and see china blue,
and emerald green,
and a translucent turquoise sea,
and golden sands gleaming.
The heady fragrance of frangipani
Reminds me of her…
Aubergine clouds fill my mind.
My heart aches Prussian blue.
My mouth tastes ferric red.
I miss her more than sunrise orange.
