Morning Song. {Poem}

Three boys in a dory with lobster pots

this morning


fresh, like a dewdrop

blooming in the mouth of a rose—

standing still,

waiting for awakenings;

dawn has already passed.


this sky


a circled wonder

hidden beyond the stars.

it’s light-blue veil

like the skin of a whale


this blue


iridescently tender sea

opening space after space

into its heart of clouds

dropping peace

like raindrops from its edges.


this sound


chattering birds;

the laughter of the little (miracle)


wrapped in cherry leaves

and sun rays.


Love elephant and want to go steady?
