“Talking to Sunday” dVerse Open Link #106

Sunday morning’s silence
sweeps the streets where cars are
parked in driveways with cooled engines

I listen to the roosters crow,
when minutes equalize,
splitting the air with a breeze

I like your afternoon when sunlight
dances on my shoulders

I like your colours of the evening —
a palette of life rising behind
the mountain view

I love you beyond trains, doors and
corners that have been without friends

I love you with joy;
my back against the pain,
a beloved sliver against what can be
where windows ascend stars;
you are my ceremony.

  1. Nice! There’s something very evocative about the cars sitting with their engines cooling, and I especially love the second-to-last stanza.

  10. You have created so much atmosphere in this. I like the transition from description to the second person, bringing with it the intimacy of Sunday as it should be. Refreshing.

  11. “You are my ceremony.” —– Love that line. Sunday indeed is a special kind of day….a day to savor from early morn until the colors of the evening are in view!

  22. A beautiful piece that sings many verses of a song in which you have invited us to listen to.
