The Play Of Light


I watch the
Play of light
Dance over your
Face in the
First waking of dawn
I wonder how
I could be
So lucky to
Find love again
When all love
Should be just
Someone's happy memories
Instead I feel
The hum of
Life once more
In the cold
Of a winter
Morning I want
To watch you
Before you wake
Before you turn
To me and
Open your eyes
And gift me
With your smile
I touch the
Soft of your
Shoulder with a
Gentle hand and
Whisper into the
Early morning light
"I love you…"

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
