Lollipop


This morning’s sky

Is a robins egg

Pale blue outside

With white edges

Where it cracked

The East glows

An iridescent white

While cool night

Retreats far west

Dipping its shadow

Behind the cypresses

The vibrant rich

Colors of day

Remain still muted

Sleepiness calm like

The last dream

I just had

Hangs like netting

I bathe nighttime

But dawn each

And every dawn

Brings to me

The same sweet

First taste of

A new lollipop
