jealousy

i'm jealous of the wind that caresses your skin

each breath of air that you breathe in

i'm jealous of the birds that catch your eye

their flight so elegant across the sky

i'm jealous of the song that sticks in your head

and the cotton sheets that cover your bed

 

 

◄ upon waking (for the first time)

Eiren, great poem! And, you got a song stuck in my head, an oldie, I hope you enjoy.

I like this, but think there should be a second verse.

I agree with Mindy, you do have a lovely, fresh style to your writing.

And there's nothing better than cotton sheets!
