And she smiles

Somewhere in the distance the horizon sleeps my canvas, dawn comes to me in a dream While the sun’s early rays caress her, widening her sable eyes and she smiles… (before these eyes of mine can see) Darkness drinks my landscape in silence as I breathe, staring, sending my heart along this imaginary line As she sips her cup, warm within this daylight bliss Mornings are her and she smiles… (and I find a crescent moon smiling on me) A glint, a faint hint of light I see of grapefruit tint and raspberry ribbons, like fireflies on the hill She peers out the window, runs her fingers through her hair, inhaling blue morning glory skies, and she smiles… (as I exhale the night and the eastern glow I greet) Pastels in salmon flow gather of my scene and I rejoice in the new born light for at last, across the distance, we may share the sun And she smiles…

Ahhhh..... the visuals are so pleasing. Love the "Pastels in salmon glow..." what a canvas that is to paint the scene upon. I'm smiling for the reading.

Oh, I love this! Beautifully written and a great way to start this day. By the way, I have been introduced to these K-cups I don't usually have for coffee and having a bit too many lol. Enjoy the day Chris :)

Thank you so much Heidi. I having been using them for a while, they sure do make it easy to drink too much coffee. : )
