this day…

copyright cwmartin 2011

the night
has found
your dreams
and returned
them to you
you need not
wander alone
along the shore
of expectation
skipping stones of desire
into a murky sea
come lie with me
before the dawn
touches your lips
and before the sun
tolls the noon day bell
breathe in the beauty
of the gift
of a day
with love

  1. This is lovely. I don’t remember what it’s called when the words of the poem create a shape but yours creates a bell and it’s realized right at the noon day bell. That is exquisite.

  2. This one, to me is so soft and sensitive, it touched my heart, remembering all the good feelings that come with being loved in every way. I absolutely loved it. I am playing catch up as I was on vacation. I do tend to like your romantic ones the best, I dislike all the realities that are so hard to change.
