Sunday Morning Poetry


you are a hot cup of coffee on December mornings, 
an ice-cold shower in the middle of July. 
you are rain tapping out secret messages on my window, 
whispering untold stories of our own future on an island not known to man.
i am going to love you as fiercely as ocean winds 
that rip through clouds like tiger's teeth and bear claws; 
like wolves making midnight wishes on amber moons 
that resonate through the sky 
that twinkles like movie-star smiles 
and shake every last tree in the forest.

I think I first spotted this on Flickr, but maybe Pinterest.  I wish I knew who wrote it. More, I wish I had written it for Jeffrey, my love.  Photographer unknown, and I really looked.

The hot cup of coffee with steam from the thermos is a lovely photo. Even if you didn't take it, I know you could have.

"like wolves making midnight wishes on amber moons"

This line is so unutterably gorgeous.

You know, I saw a movie recently called "Like Stars on Earth" and thought of you. It's set in India, and it's about a schoolboy who is very artistic but is having difficulty reading and writing and keeping up in class, so that everyone mocks him. Just as he's sinking into depression, an art teacher notices him and becomes his mentor, helping restore his self-worth and bring out his magical vision of the world again. I cried during the movie, which isn't without its flaws but is still a good movie; at some point I'll write about it on my blog. I just think you'll love it.
