Sunday Morning Poetry

The Coming of Light

Even if this late it happens:
the coming of love, the coming of light.
You wake and the candles are lit as if by themselves,
stars gather, dreams pour into your pillows,
sending up warm bouquets of air.
Even this late the bones of the body shine
and tomorrow's dust flares into breath.
~ Mark Strand

Mark Strand really is something - what a lovely poem to read and imagine that late coming of love and light... That's going to be me at the rate I'm going ;)
It's a rainy drizzly sort of day here, but yummy all the same, in the way only Sundays can be....

Such a lovely poem. And great to hear from you! Still amidst chaos in our "new" house, but am hoping by the end of April, it will start to feel like home. Hope all is well with you, my friend. xx

What a beautiful, beautiful poem. Thank you.

And thank you for stopping by my blog, and leaving a comment. Comments rock! They let us find new blogging friends. :-)

OHHHHHHHHHHHHH! You have the awful Blogger Word Verification Setting on here!!!!! -sigh- I know it is doing a good work, with helping old books to not be lost. But!!! It is way too time-consuming for we bloggers, to have to do it, just to comment on our favorite blogs.

Please, reconsider having it turned on? Please....

Or do you even know that it is turned on???

Many in Pretty Blog Land, will not comment in blogs, which have this. But I certainly don't like to just go away. And not let the blogger know that I was here. And not tell her, the reason why, I did not comment.

Please don't be mad at me, for saying this....

(Btw, I have had to do this Word Ver. two times already. -sigh-)
