“Cerulean and Cilium” dVerse Open Link #81

Give me the morning, where light
slants its shimmer on birds
visiting my veranda’s flowers.

As I rest, eating a pear,
with each bite its skin bursts
smooth sweetness on my tongue.

Give me cool silent air, so I may wrap
its seductiveness around my shoulders,
breathing freshness where the day parts
satiny lips, enveloping minutes
to feel life’s consoling fingers.
