#27 Listen. Respond. Savor.

by guest author Carolyn Riker

I woke up before the house did. Even Copper, my cat was slightly miffed as he stretched from his safe blanketed cocoon. The window was calling me and there it was. I had to capture what my phone camera could not:

 kissed by the sun
 the sky blushed
 lyrical alabaster clouds
 a silk screen of
 opal tints
 skimmed the surface
 a soulful melody was all
 she could hear
 between the hues of
 auburn, pinks & linger shades of blues.

 ~ Carolyn Riker
