Compare The Cold Sunrise And Be Grateful: Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

February 7, 2016

SoCal Palm tree sunset -- warm sea breeze at San Clemente BeachShe would send me photos/
of tall SoCal tropical trees/
silhouetted in the red sunset;/
dancing in the warm sea breeze.

As if to entice me/
to visit and to stay./
To warm my feet in the sand/
and watch the palm trees sway.

I returned the photo favor/

against cold blue mountain skies.

but to remind her to be grateful for the warm beauty she had.
Cold Sanpete County frosted cottonwood sunrise
