it is a long time since we saw daybreak

so no wonder

we think it beautiful when, looking ahead,
there it is suddenly: ribbons of gold and rouge
spreading behind the hills, slowly unravelling, perfumed,
gay, and a soft light touches your face
and our memories of a deep, remote, unceasing river

i love your choice of music to convey what i refused to accept
and my tortuous path to understand it

it is as magical as autumn,

limbs of the grand old elm
black against the watchful sky, rumours rising
from an unseen sea, that
is far from our small selves and our impermanent
desires in the church of self-interests

things are too predictable:

you want strawberries/i want champagne


these are my ethereal and dreamy words,
while others lie in ambush,
resolute and plenty, as in the past,

but for now the heavens are breaking open
and reassembling like yellow dragons, before
my equally fevered mind

  4. Beautiful. I can see this daybreak. Had it yesterday, but today it’s a reversion to gray and rain and cold. So time to build a fire, in my stove, in my eyes, and in my heart 🙂

    1. Thank you. It’s one of the most amazing phenomena of life, although the opportunity to build that stove-fire should also make us grateful for the cold.
