Images of a Day
Aries: When the heat is at its peak and your vision is tinged red. Sudden breezes flush your skin as they swirl the heavy air.
Taurus: The day is still cloaked; bullet points of morning dew still cover most everything. Mossy green, dusk orange- slick, pearly river beds of stone.
Gemini: Faries tread on the backs of squirrels, you’re sure, as golden light sheds the days skin. Bubbly tree leaves glow as pink as baby cheeks.
Cancer: Fresh moonlight, of course. A fierce white glow pierces cloud cover and falls as quartz crystal beams. Wet leaves crunch beneath feet.
Leo: Perfect picnic weather. Soft grass blades crawling with life, insects and infants alike. Bustling movement and summer laughter.
Virgo: The antsy hour before sunrise, when night’s silence builds to a crescendo. Half-cracked blinds, purple-gray light, finger tapping on the window sill.
Libra: Silky sunset stitched with palm fronds. The leaves are etched in black against the sky, shaking hands with a defiant breeze.
Scorpio: The world tastes sticky sweet with dew. Plaster paint chips off a suburban house as a kid strums burning-heart songs on his guitar.
Sagittarius: New dawn. It appears somebody scrawled across the sky- big, blotchy dripping-ink strokes, leaving behind a blistering red puncture.
Capricorn: A scene almost too clean. An all glass, slate-black building reveals nothing of its interior as city slickers circle it in a midday bustle.
Aquarius: Walking with a couple of friends in a tall grass path- firefly flumes in misty light. The evening buzzes in purple static.
Pisces: Two-year-old club-handed baby sits on park bench, staring into the bottom of a fountain scaly with pennies.
