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…
