  Samguine dawn is expelled.
Azure-lidded bluebirds are
disappearing. Magenta honeysucle
spreads in the air undevoured.
The oak in the backyard of
the islands watches her.

The crickets keep everyone
strung out at night by the limestone
warm pond, surrounded by foliage.
The rusty sunlight dapples
on the ochre apple's on the tree,
while pure violets fade.

I love the feeling of heaviness that you convey here. Atmosphere comes to life in the scents, colors, and sounds.
