there is so much more i want to capture of that quiet moment before sunrise, when you are left alone to be honest with your thoughts and desires.


As the purple dawn rises

Painting orange strokes of rays

To illuminate

Depths of a bottomless blue bay

Setting it aflame

Standing silently

By the burnt umber windows

I watch caramel sunlight

Compete then combine

With the warm honey glow

Spread by a candle on the mantle

Casting lavender hued shadows

That cling

To thick, liquorice waves

Cascading over

Her quietly sleeping frame…
