Beyond The Missouri Sky

Beyond The Missouri Sky

written by: Elizabeth Palmer Kellogg



The terrazzo tiles under our feet
baked hot
corners massaged
by centuries of sandals

The Aegean rolls smooth as a pearl
over ankles

The slip of my strap
as your fingertips
wander over my shoulders
glide down my arms

August afternoon siesta
holds us in its hush
silent streets
empty café seats

The blue breezes of morning
gentle as the brush
of Flamenco strings
at midnight

A Lydian dream
of luxurious landscape
beyond the Missouri sky.
