Time basks in the renaissance Of a pulsing velvet air Marigolds touch push the azure In crimson-gold blaze. The day stretches before me... I sit with my cup of tea Under an aegean sombrero Macaroon clouds flit. The morning charms me like a Living poem on wings of Petalled blossoms sashaying On gossamer breeze. Songs cascade from tiny throats Musicians of the ether Warbling their euphoria Aural nourishment.. The yellow ochre orb glows Like a sunflower in a Lilac sky burning purple A marmalade toast... Twilight tiptoes in.. Preamble to dark's tremble A night's belonging And darkness comes swiftly Unleashing silence of sleep As winds tiptoe on fallen leaves Shadows recede... In the hush of night I feel time's heartbeat I break my hourglass To find a rainbow.
