Morning's Kiss




Piano carry this heart away
take my morning into another day
simplicity is enough to make me cry
if I can just hold on to you

Float far above the fiery sky
somewhere near the mirror of your eye
floors and doors and fluttering lace
keep telling me to hold on to you

Find your hush in my warmth and ways
fall from crush of nights and days
canopies of linen line your dreams
stay and let me hold on to you

Listen to the open window's song
the melody lingers and the notes are long
we'll dance again into morning's kiss
and I will hold on to you




Dear LadyClaire

Claire,
      have you been listening to the wind again?  I hope so, because this is what I heard on it too. . .

Beautiful poem, my friend. . .

Thank you, all. This morning the piano and the breezes through the house brought out that romantic, nostalgic feeling, I guess, and this poem/song just sort of "happened"...glad you found it to your liking. Thanks so much for letting me know...you folks are so kind.

Beautifully written Claire.  I have the windows open this evening, with a gentle breeze.  I hope your windows are still open also.

So romantic and beautiful Claire.  This one is definitely a read aloud one..and I did so several times.  Truly lovely words.

Mike, thank you. My windows do stay open quite a bit. And yes, they were open last night, and remain so.

Denise, so glad you enjoyed this.  

Krista, you know,  when I read poetry, I read aloud.  As I write poetry, I read what I've written aloud. The spoken word, especially in poetic design, can bring such a sensory awakening. Thank you so much for reading this and for your sweet response.

poetFemme, so good to know this gave you something to enjoy. Thank you for reading it and for letting me know.

~ Claire

Claire~
What a lovely melody played through
this piece.

'Listen to the open window's song
the melody lingers and the notes are long'

You sing/play the prettiest songs, Claire.

The sounds from my harpsichord are often heard by neighbors across the lake
who call and ask me to play their favorite songs.  

What beautiful memories you have to play.
Happy Easter to you and your children.

Ah, Marge...I can almost hear it...the magical soundings of your harpsichord across the lake...such a gifting that must be for your neighbors, and for you, to know that they find such enjoyment in your playing...what a treasure!

Thank you for your kindness.  I hope your Easter was blessed with love and shared peace.

I have to tell you this could be a page right from my life. I can remember Rosemary coming down the stairs in the early morning light and kissig me softly on the back of my neck. But I've learned since then she had some other things on her head. Was it the music... Or did I miss it. Women are so hard to figure, but it was sure a wonderful time you've brought to rememberin. I love this. Nice and sweet, now I think I'll try for rest. Sweet dreams Meadow. Does the world go by eastern standard time. Sometimes I just drift off wandering when I should be tired. So "Morning Kiss" to the top of the list.

 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name.  (Michelle A. Bartley)

Claire,
     I love this!  You are very charming.  I can hear the music on the wind, too -- the music of your heart!

Love Ya~

Meadowmuse,
     I like the words that you penned from the heart.  I like to listen to the notes on the wind, too.  I like to listen to its whispers, for I have found that usually it is trying to tell me something.  

Love your poem!
