‘Recluse’ by Tony Senatore

Grappling heat leaks
from a bright hole in the sky.
An invisible, broiling blanket
wrapped tightly, burning the skin.
Ocean blue clashing with yellow magma.
Look with a dizzy gaze to the wavering horizon.

A retreat to the cold rock walls of refuge nearby.
Draped in shadow — unseen and untouched.
Once raging sands now tamed by shade.
Laid gently to rest on a cooled floor,
dreams set to the sounds
of crashing waves.

Tony Senatore | ’20
