Dawn Rising

“Morning without you is a dwindled dawn.”

— Emily Dickinson

I’d share an orange sorbet

sunrise with you at 16 or 82,

like this cool, mellow morning — 

what a privilege to see

so many day-beginnings 

with your kindness beside me,

blue sky & clouds rising,

a path before us, another

excursion of our ongoing,

hand-holding walks

under the glorious rays, 

bound by a simple exchange

of our uncomplicated love.

—C.L. Fisher, July 2021
