one day



early morning

          today i follow the path of the sun



and i have had
one cup of coffee
watching clouds dissipate in a paua sky
steam drifting upwards
this cool october morning
my fingertips melt
into glazed ceramic
it feels like an awakening
i eat toast with Robert
listen to his children chirping
like baby birds
while their mother sits in a sunlight nest
it is mid-morning
october, like a memory, is waning
but high above
the sun is rising


high noon

(the sun is on ecstasy
and i am high on the sun)
