Lost in Azure (new day)


Lost in Azure
(new day)

across the way
last night’s rain puddles
amidst the chaos of construction
trapped on-site

as if abandoned
by the waters of earth
it erodes its way to the culvert
in search of mother sea

this new day begins
dewy and crisp

bird songs echo empty sunrise streets

lover and beloved
we sit by the morning window
with tea and curiosity

we talk

in this moment
our souls spill
one into the other

until I am distracted

your lips continue sculpting words
but I’ve fallen into your deep eyes
