NaPoWriMo Day 1


I want to snuggle into

your skin, see through

your eyes, tilt your nose

up to the sky & take a deep 

drought of your breath.

Is your brain messaged by 

Octopus tentacles, millions

of suction cups kissing your

cerebellum? Is your understanding

prickled by the toes of earth’s

creatures? Is your empathy colored

with chlorophyll and seed?

We are sea and forest

sky and flesh, 

we see differently, together

a world made for all.

  1. “Visceral” is JUST the word I would have used, so I guess I will: viscerally effective work, Charlotte. I could feel those cerebral suction cups. And the photo’s a perfect complement to this fine work. Well done.
