morning: | A Poem by Rick Davis | PAROUSIA Magazine

i awake from a cloudy dream of
dark leaf horses running
with wild bronze manes.

i slide open the bedroom drapes
as a sweet design unfolds
as I watch playful birds –

imagining that they are flying
towards an eastern garden-home.

on the black-brown electrical wire
a robin is bathed in cool
misty wind.

a season of light.
