Morning…

into this silent
morning
I place
my carefully
wrapped
delicately
ribboned
heart

a gift
to the day

dawn ripples
birdsong
fingers
tucking my
gift
into softly
waiting
mother
of pearl

in a breath
flushed with
tangerine
blushing shells
shedding turquoise
ribbons
dawn
slips inside
neatly tucked
corners

unfolding me
naked
and new

placing
my full-blown
peony bloom
self
in the arms
of the mother
again
