“Early Riser…”

Night-light thoughts

illuminate dreams,

casting silhouettes upon

the echoes of longing.

Late-to-bed, early-to-rise,

they arrive,


these couples and tag-alongs of what is,

and what is to come.

Tendrils of Peace,

combed through draped broderie,

cast shadow-nets

over the body of Life,

intent upon landing both feet,

hovering carpeted Earth…

to declare praises,

for blessed inhalation of newness,

exhaling the ‘lesser-than’.


detailed tranquility

lays quietly,

holding her heart

in the hush of his hand.
