Blue Daylight

A bewitching sea

lingers near

my litany

for you.

I took my hands

and with them

I wrote you a thousand poems,

all dedicated to the rain

and the moon

that come so evenly into my life and never disappoint me.

Come night,

come loving black browed night

and be bright again

within my eyes

I need you so.

I want to wake up

in the arms of loyalty

and have again

all that I lack

and feel content

in consistency.
