STAR OF THE MORNING
Morning star, guides dawn to a nice shelter,
From which her blanket of night, can be folded;
Halves, quarters, eights,
Enough to stash away into bird songs
Gifting tweets and trills

Sheer fragrance

The wisdom of windows opened
To coolness, before
Yon petulant sun pouts like a naughty child,
Too torrid to melt desert sands,
Too yellow for narcissistic dreamers.

  2. I adore this; "petulant sun pouts like a naughty child, too torrid to melt desert sands,
    too yellow for narcissistic dreamers." Beautifully penned.

  8. Very nice, Gillena. I like the contrast, romantic Noon versus crotchety Sun. What has happened to "work while the Sun shines?"
