appreciation, beauty, love, morning, romance, sun,
by Gregory Richard Barden |
Long, the shadows with morning dew
Herringbone clouds like gossamer lace
Airbrushed above on the blazing blue
Blooming as morn on your angel face
Sunrise enchanter with skin, unleaven
Tenderly daubed with a kiss ... of heaven.

hope, husband, love, passion,
though we've gotten used to moving on and away
just before the dawn ushers in
another new day
still it deeply pains me to see you see me
feigning strength in letting you go,
letting you be
but let's take heart, this sunup will soon be sundown
and we shall once again be alone,
on our own
so for now, let your slumber drift away, satin hair,
let it vanish like a wisp of mist
in the air.
