On the Breath of Morning

On the Breath of Morning

Like waking to
the voice of love
on the breath of morning,
the magic of an embrace
lingers long after parting.

This poem also works as a gogyohka (a five-line short verse form of Japanese poetry) for Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #45 Gogyohka.

  1. Beautiful poem, and background.
    Guess I should’ve known there would be an online version of magnetic poetry … given online jigsaws, online everything. I have the actual physical magnetic poetry tiles and sometimes engage them. Tactile contact adds to the experience. I think also standing while manipulating the tiles contributes brain impulses – mine are on a metal cabinet in my dressing area, chest high – poem’s on display till next urge to create.

    • Thank you, Jazz. There are five different themed tile sets. I’ve been known to pull a tile from one set to fill in for a word that’s not in the set I’m using. 😉 That’s easy enough, since I use GIMP to edit the screenshot for spacing or layering over a photo. And the use of my photos prompts me to see them in ways I might not have, otherwise.
      I imagine having the physical set of tiles could act as a subliminal prompt to address thoughts and routines of daily life.
