You have always loved early morning light.
Raising shades pushing closed curtains open.
Each flash from room to room? Presence left bright.
I have followed steps morning to dusk.
I have watched you sigh with a darker sky
And laugh at the sun, for late waking up.
I have caught you in my afternoon arms
I felt your escape from curtain to shade From door to door, calm and without alarm.
Briskly from room to room almost a dance.
Occasionally you gave me a smile
with blinking dark eyes, in a quick side-glance.
Lost is the love that never can be caught.
Lost is the chaser that never can stop.
Note: Inspired by a modern sonnet by Robert Frost’s “Acquainted With The Night”. ( a must read for all future and current Poets, in my opinion :). The written poem is beneath the video
