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
a season of light.
