Smooth glass, clear, or in the prism’s spectrum Cool of polished marble in Washington’s monuments smooth of a baby’s skin, freshly powdered
Soft of a ripe peach’s fuzz, feel the fruit underneath soft of a sheep’s wool, warm to the touch soft warm ocean water, running off my hot skin
Rough oak bark, below its broad leaves Thick tough alligator hide Coarse granite stone, solid, or appearing so rough, light pumice rock, light and airy
Sharp thorns of a rose bush, protecting the delicate blooms sharp quills of the porcupine Gritty sand, between my toes
Moist humus, under the forest canopy slippery oil, sticky pine pitch Algae covered broad leaf seaweed scaly snake skin
Hard sea shells, baking on the shore Hot coils on the stove, glowing red cold ice on the pond, for skating, pierced for fishing
Brittle ancient pages, crumbling under my touch, pearls of, rivers of, sweat on my skin in the hot sun Rough sawgrass, gelatinous bullfrog egg mass Fuzzy bunny fur, spiny sea urchin These are textures of creation.
