a couple poems

did a little writing this morning and ended up with a couple poems...

morning's pace

morning's pace
set by the rising sun
a pale disk
slowly upward
through an almost endless tangle of trees
hot coffee
raspberries infused with chill morning air
bare skin
shared warmth
spread in lingering drowse
in the green and gold
birds wake the garden
sipping nectar from red-orange blossoms
setting leaves trembling in the wake of invisible wings
plucking seeds from the centers of golden wreaths
carrying treasures
one by one
to a nearby perch to tease meats from husks
creeping quietly in shadows
amongst stems and stalks
beneath clinging vines

sunlight's song (the monarch)
the glory and grace of sunlight's song
through stained-glass wings
