Poem for Today

Some Sunshine

Burning dot of Western sun,
Wringing old Winter’s hurt out of me.

Makes me sleepy soft,
Bending me gently,
Sprawled on the carpet next to you.

I feel the burst of each photon,
Watching it twist and swing though your hair,
It’s a million tiny monkeys,
Playing easy,
Bouncing through the bright strands.

I blow near your ear.
And the golden curtain over your face shifts colors,
Parting like sand.

I see you smile,
And feel able to sleep.
