Fill us at daybreak with your kindness .

[Ps 90.14]


What's there to smile about today? Thank God for the grace of poetry.


marigold in the wild   the fox's eyes
 smell of rain   first lightning streaks
the old shed    squeak of a door
when azure returns    absent clouds
more wildflowers    tomorrow's sunshine
the smile of a child    and running feet
arms of a mother    lovingly outstretched
the wind blows   tall grasses dancing
across the field   mountain peaks
far from our dreams   a horizon

A lovely tumble of imagery in your poem, Gillena. It read much like a cleave poem, where both parts can be read independently and still make perfect sense :-)

This was wonderfully constructed and a pleasure to read with vivid images.
