2011-5

A Lover 

In eastern sky a flame cherry orange-red 
sends thin fingers to slowly caress a dark silhouette
Reaching across tree tops, pinnacles of mounds, 
plains and hill sides of deep moist valleys
A gradual warming is released, 
sending a distinctive perfume to kiss
as a warm breath on a lovers cheek.
For dawn is bright light
and a Lover has returned
to she who is Great Mother.
His potent gift is all 
hers to have 
to bear 
fruit on earth.

  6. Thank you very much for your kind comments.

    Incidentally the shape was pure fluke :) because it was originally arranged on the left and only when I centred it did it become bowl shape.

  8. What a lovely sense of peace and metre there is to this. I often dislike winter for its chill, but forget it is the time of sunsets and sunrises as I see each one.
