morning kiss


triangles of light;
soft fractals
of a sun
i watch
climb across
a milky blue threadbare sky

a sky
as washed-out
and thin
as old sheets

light
falls
on autumn's dried husks
also
fallen
on the winter blue
of a river pebble

a morning kiss


for reya and jo

Beautiful verse, elegant in its simplicity, much like the natural light of which it speaks. I love the photograph.

your experiments with blue are working beautifully.
Your words, as always, a poem.

The images knock me out (in the softest, gentlest kind of way).

How sensual with the threadbare sky and thin old sheets, that cold winter blue warmed by a morning kiss. A beautiful juxtaposition.

Mesmerizing, Steven.

Reya Mellicker said...

Wow. How ... how do you do it Steven? Wow.

A morning, afternoon and evening kiss to you!

Exquisite imagery, Steven. You capture the beauty of the approaching Winter perfectly.

May I now boast that a man has written poetry for me? Maybe some day, after I've brought it to dwell privately inside my heart for a time.

What happiness you've brought my way today...thank you!
