breathe, drink in the cobalt of a perfect sky abandon, absent rain left us with cracked earth fall, tumbling with leaves on a windy day hurt, winter’s ache culminating in rebirth

Laura has prepared this week’s Meeting the Bar at the dVerse Poets Pub and has us writing two by two: today’s poetry prompt is all about couplets!
I rather like the côte, a poem of uneven couplets attributed to John Schroeder, in which line 1 is a single imperative verb and line 2 is a glossing or expansion of line 1. She has given us an example, rhyme and meter is of our own choosing.
