Last night,
another apricot sunset
leaves parched lips
puckered in anticipation
of a sloppy wet kiss

This morning,
the young doe rises
 in the long shadows of dawn
 from the verdant alfalfa field
leaps gracefully over the electric fence and
concrete irrigation ditch in one smooth motion
in a reminder of the beauty of God's creation

So I pause once again
as the babbling of water
through blue and white plastic ditch
calms my wound tight heart
pondering how the holy hush of daybreak seduces
and remembering His goodness to me
