Day 26 – Sensory


she stood on the quarry's lip her back
to green water thirty feet below
the great grey bowl rising
into a summer afternoon of salty
mouth and lotioned limbs
stoney scent of sun
and oh she leaned
into it tipped
and flipped and dove
her tanning self
into the mineraled
emerald miracle
a white knife
