JEWELRY

skating on the precipice of silence

a day that begins with softly falling snow ends with a slowly rising moon.

i walk down the driveway in the dark, and she sings to me.

inside, there is warmth and comfort food,

celebration and light.

i stand for a moment, dressed in moonlight and pearls

gazing up at that mona lisa smile.

she knows, as do i,

that the sun will rise all too soon.

    This is an incredible image! I can feel the tentativeness of your kitty’s steps. And your poetry is magnificent. Simply wonderful!
