Pillow Fight Premonitions by Scott Thomas Outlar

Throwback hearts
sewn with silken threads
of hope and faith
from an earlier
innocent age
rip up primal soil
and dig deep
to plant seeds anew
in a garden grown
with modern care

Everything is turquoise
everything is yellow
everything is sunshine
everything is high tide
everything is ocean air
everything is oysters
bursting from their shells

I saw you leaning
calm
casual
and cool
against the wall
playing tricks
in a crystal mirror
with glances
that divined
our future
in full detail

flashing bright lights
into my eyes
across the distance

burning eternal love
into my heart
with just one look

I felt you dance
in a feathered bed
of roaring romance
as a laugh that melted
my bones to marrow
leapt from the depths
of your molten core

Now I need your kiss
ever more
with morning bliss
and nighttime glistening
of moon
today
tomorrow
and always
after
