paul klee

in the morning
we sit together on the bed
as we do most mornings
sipping coffee
talking
looking out into the garden
at the plants and birds
you open a book of paul klee's paintings
they seem to speak to you
move you
and i think that's why we're so good together
you and i
those paintings
of strange and beautifully haunting gardens and creatures
look
feel
like who i think i am
or what i dream myself to be when i am most awake
an ethereal landscape
of plants and animals that never were
blossoming and thriving
in the sun and the rain of your love
