Daylight Birds Take Morning Flight
I was up before seven
I made a pot of coffee
I swept the floor
I listened to the radio
I poured the coffee
I put sugar and cream in
I climbed back into bed and slept
until the dawn of night.
I watched the moon arch overhead
from orange to milky white; silver dollar sized
with full moon’s
full moon light.
I watched night birds take night time flight.
While breezes washed ashore beside
I walked the line where all three meet; the sky
within dark water, waves of moonlight,
sparkling grains of sand reflecting light below/above
between each others sight
within the kiss of night …
I looked into the grounds of sweet good byes/the thought of daylight in disguise/the sky that touches deep within …
The sound of inland seas.
I climbed back into bed and slept again.
With speckled stars above the nighttime breeze
with moonlight showing through the trees
I’ll sleep ‘till morning light
when day begins
and daylight birds
