Poetry | Wednesday Morning by Rick Davis

Wednesday Morning

in pale morning
i rest in the recliner
closing my eyes –
 
observing thoughts –
feeling like an unaccustomed stone
tangled in mesh root.
 
I begin to sense peace
like moving air in murmuring trees —
 
feeling euphoric
like a priest losing innocence
in prayerful contemplation
 
once again observing –
 
seeing that reason and emotion
weave imaginary graves.
 
Filled with grace-filled love
i become a twilight traveler
 
flying through ocean sky.
 
I breathe ethereal clouds
and playfully become
 
living air.
