Nature's wake

The mornings bright 
lit the once black in my eyes

The tips of mine digits 
on my hands and on my feet 
pulled me like the rubber band
in a mighty stretch,
I then
yawned

And after my wake;
nature had me reach for
the you

    What is Sir James up to, I was just asking myself. So, I decided to find one of his poems and read it a few hundred times - such is his complex mind. This is not complex, James, just great. Merry Christmas. Love, daver

    Many people wake up groggy and need a cup of coffee before they reach out for their loved one. How wonderful that the mere touch of the sun on your eyes makes you reach for her. Beautifully written, James. Love, Carolyn
