One Crystal Morning

One crystal morning I happened upon a garden of

blushing roses veiled in sparkling dew. Your smile 

came to mind. And I wondered if I had sufficient 

promise to pen words of honor and adoration in

your name. Nearby in an autumn orchard, I paused

to consider fresh aromas of peach and recalled intimate 

moments we once shared. And in a lane along a white 

picket fence I encountered a tiny hummingbird engaged 

in careful inspection of a profusion of bluebonnets and

I reflected on the strength of his wee heart. And at once

I longed to be a shadow in your dreams full of affection,

abiding trust, and eternal love.
