Music Monday-Song Three, Bekkie Sanchez

Music Monday is a music prompt writing event done each week in the Show Offs Community on Google Plus. Each week we take a different song, listen to it and write about how that song makes us feel. This piece was written for Song Three

Lake Michigan

Knee high dune grasses
slicing delicate skin
as I walk.
Droplets of blood
ooze forth.

My feet squeak
in singing sand
in the hot
noonday sun
as I climb
Mt. Baldy.

Over the
whitecaps of
the great lake
l spy Chicago.

Blinding light
reflecting off
the water
reminds me
of my sunglasses.

I fish them
out of
a back pocket
retrieving
broken frames.
