aesthetics 101 (Daily Prompt-August Blues)


aesthetics 101

fresh notebook paper

causes blank page anxiety

cursing cursive roots

planted on rows of lines

looped petals awaken

tease then grow into

notes or poems or stories

tucked in folded rainbows at the end of summer


crisp fresh air

causing anticipation

as Summer winds down

with hues of its last sunset

kissing Autumn’s leaves

cracking beneath my feet and the robin egg shaded sky

turning to blankets of onyx adorned with

Mother Nature’s most precious gems

while conversation

laughter and stolen kisses

are muses to cure

blank page anxiety

As a kid, were you happy or anxious about going back to school? Now that you’re older, how has your attitude toward the end of the summer evolved?
