sipping sunshine


all that yellow jacket honey
-coated daybreak, broken
-open dawn.

a yawn of moon aiding
and a-bedding herself in snowy
mountain morning duvet.

a fray of sky fabric,
billowed soft by breeze.

whirred by one last
of the tongue,
hummed low,
sweetly s(t)ung.


For Mish’s awesome Quadrille #74 over at dVerse (late to the party, but I’ll bring snacks.)

    This is wonderfully witty, with some great visuals and an excellent internal rhyme. Liked this “broken open” poem… 😉

    Oooh! “all that yellow jacket honey-coated daybreak,” sweet and stinging.

  9. I read this and thought “I wish I’d written that” – as I so often do round here. It’s just beautiful.

    Stunning images and word phrases beyond my imagination. You need a whole book in honor of your Luna. 😉

    I liked the dawn and yawn of Moon.

  12. Grace says:

    What a beautiful color of the daybreak and sky fabric. Fabulous De!!!

  13. You’ve always been a queen of word-play, De, but this tops the list. So just perfect.

  14. Lona Gynt says:

    Warmly precise word painting, some pain with the joy, morning is not breaking, it is dripping all around us here. Wow De!

  15. “A yawn of moon aiding
    and a-bedding herself in snowy
    mountain morning duvet.“

    Love those words and the image the present.
