my morning poem -



Round – November 26, 2007

 

 

The moon is in the morning sky.

 

Though a few days past full,

it still shines round and white,

rippled with veins of blue.

 

I am exuberant

with the coming days

the entry into winter trees,

who’ve dropped their leaves,

bark ablaze with fairy fingers,

knitting in the light.

 

A sand dollar rests on my desk.

I brought it from the sea, needing

the star held in a circle,

the palm.

 

It drops sand on my desk.

 

There is a little hole,

a place holding home,

sand that turns,

percolating the place

we all reside

even as we die

to change

our form.

 

Round and round

we go.  The phases of the moon

an hourglass

we hold.
