First Blush

new dawn

The autumn wind

saluted my face this morning,

and the smell of its glory

made me turn towards you…

I love watching you sleep,

embracing the pillow

like a child’s safety blanket.

The white blinds danced like angels

against the window sill

as the sun cascaded light

into the vastness

of our nest…

I love hearing the sounds of your breath

taking deep inhales

and exhaling with the earth.

Your hands reached through

the sea of blankets

anchoring themselves on my waist

pulling me closer to oblivion

and then…



that always lets me

taste the possibilities

of a new dawn.

(for MJP)
