Break of Day

An early morning mist

with a swirling kiss

envelops the waiting trees


as the bright sun rises

on a light breeze

through a golden capriace,


and bands of light break

suddenly through a slash between

the curtain and window sash


while you curl toward me in our bed,

curly gray head pillowed on my chest,

the best part of every day.
