Ode to the Past

September always makes me super-sentimental... I took a poem break after preserving peaches before tackling tomatoes.
Happy Labor Day!

The law of love and gravity  
Rouses soul-storms within
Where every breath life lends to me
Exceeds these shores of skin

And every death that dusk extols
Where earth succumbs to sky
Sweetens the waves that sweep through holes
Once full of you and I

The fluent speech of clouds and such
Shatters star-studded bars
Where I, caught in the teeth of Touch  
Showcase its reef of scars
