July Morning

july morning-sun


On this July morning

the world is again created

from the orange stare of the sun


On this July morning

the night becomes a brightly-lit room

and tiny leaves unfurl on their branches


On this July morning

the lakes take off their black cloaks

and reveal their island breasts, their lilies


On this July morning

I awaken aroused and turn to find you

looking at me and wanting me


On this July morning

I enter your soft warmth as sunlight

shines through the shutters and into our minds


July Morning
