morning stone

 

leaf shadows dance on this sun
-spilled wall, ruffled by the unseen.
one hungry robin sits above it all,
crimson breast swollen with morning.

  1. Oh, De…I just love this…I enjoy your contrasting halves of this small delicate stone and the way that ruffled brings it all together. Well spilled…sigh. ♥

  2. “swollen with morning” – love that image. I, too, love the placement of that “ruffle.”
    Very reminiscent of the great Emily Dickinson!

  3. I am entranced by that last line. Love this poem, De.
