The sun patterns the wall
to lace
and weaves crystal
into the morning
we lie heaped under
blankets
listening to the lazy minutes
marveling each other



In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)

Hey this reminds me of when I wake up in the morning, only when I wake up I'm not usually in such a beautifully serene mood that you portray here... I have several ash remains of potted plants that I keep around my room as proof of that...um...heh-heh...

Beautiful poem!!!

Though my body be
Human, my heart and soul be
That of a dragon.

Watching the poets
Passions' guardian dragon
Moves with the rhymes' flow.

Ah Martie I love this! There's something about that sun streaming through the windows and hitting the wall. So cheery!

The lazy minutes.....ah yes.....what a refreshing poem.
Nicely done!

Wondeful! Quick to read, and it created a marvelous image.
Try to put it into Tanka. That might be neat to see.
Either way, a marvelous post.

Martie,

I loved this the first time I read it and the second reading just reaffirms that. Thanks for sharing this.
