risen


i awoke this morning
to a wooing dawn song of the birds
standing in the dark ,
i looked out my window
to the other side of the river
mesmerized
by the floating luminal streetlights
all along its bank
reflections stretched out
like candle flames on the surface of the water
silent mercy in the sleeping calm

i thought i saw your face
your alluring smile almost within reach
quietly beckoning me
across the rippling light
to the safety on the other side

was it just a dream?

That was beautiful Dana. I could imagine the reflected light dancing on the waters surface. Really lovely.
