Tired Again

tired again
though winter’s rest is over
sun dried chill blows
through a honeysuckle covered
briar patch

Respite cut short
by an early drought

balmy aroma settles sluggishly
among prickles and poison ivy
like artificially flavored syrup
on bleached, deep fried bread

stripped of nutritional purpose
sweet intoxication deteriorates

good thing I try and check this regularly

my fav lines
balmy aroma settles sluggishly
on bleached, deep fried bread

You have a way with words, thoughts which is so poetic LOL - that's cause you are a natural poet
