Prompt Images

What is the view like
Where you are? Can you
See me reaching from
Afar, arms outstretched,
Unable to taste the breath
From your wild wind
Winding, tugging, pushing
As only you can
So subtle and loud.

The view from here is brilliant
A orange red sunset
Collapsing beneath
The weight of maroon
Clouds. Can’t you see it
From where you are?
Certainly the brilliance
Of our single star
Will warm you as it
Rises. Over the horizon
Line, you are there,
Unseen but felt,
A hardship away from
Losing it all.

Whenever you are
Wherever you tread
This world will find
A way for you to sip
The rainwater from
Glossy leaves,
Little butterfly.
