Love in the Morning

To warm you today.  A Valentine's Day poem.



Prayer (M.A. FReilly, 2017)

Love in the Morning

Morning’s a new bird
stirring against me
out of a quiet nest,
coming to flight—

quick-changing,
slow-nodding,
breath-filling body,

life-holding,
waiting,
clean as clear water,

warmth-given,
fire-driven
kindling companion,

mystery and mountain,
dark-rooted,
earth-anchored.

  1. Each word perfectly placed. Beautiful.

    Morning. A new day. New possibilities.
