-sacred Kisses - Poem by Debora Short

Early morning mists envelop and swirl
Beneath Smokey’s English topography

By day, she sports a stylish new fall coat
Angled vertical ripples in sepia

With textured points of cedar-ed green
Contrasting veins of rust invading her

Lofty domain now halo-ed in fiery
Magenta - fused cyan and yellows

Printing hallowed images in my
Photographic lifetime-d memories

Arising to this early morn’s sacred kiss
With morning’s peace cupped in steaming

Tea, quietly waking my sleepy space
Wrapped in sixty watt electric lights

Serenity affording sweet silence
A gift sent so I might read in His stillness

(White-Noise Free, Tennessee

    Reading in His stillness. Savoring the sacred. Truth, beauty, kindness, the life of God. These are the things that matter. Fine poem, Debora. I like the alliteration, the crisp imagery, the ideas you have expressed. (Report)Reply
