"Good Morning, World!"

LUMINOSITY II

Eye would paint the sky

in oils feathering greys

for M(eye) clouds of Gold

DAWN

Sun-meshed horizon

colouring clouds, Eye can hear

M(eye) morning bird song

ON WATCH

The Hawk Window Seat 5:30am

I woke from The Hawk Queen Bed

to see The Full Moon resting

over The Cape

and on the other side

of The Earth

the pink glow of promise

that soon I would see

My Beloved Sun

edge Its way to the surface

NORTHERN SUN

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 7:09am

The Sun rises North now

over The Scrub Spruce

leaving only a glance

of Silver Water

for Me to stretch My Eye to —

but I saw It this morning

from the bathroom window upstairs

where I COULD see more water

and saw It blip to the surface

before I went back

to sleep

FIRST POEM IN A NEW JOURNAL

The Hawk West Desk Window 8:45pm

I can watch The Sun go down

in The West

over prehistoric islands

then I can watch It rise

in The East

over My Favourite

Ocean

LOOKING UP

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 7:36am

The Sun has risen

much further North

than I expected

& I am to execute

a sculpture of Hunter’s closest friend

whose eyes are up & open

to the surprise of his

final moment

CLOUD MORNING

The Hawk Kitchen Outpost 7:40am

I see The Silver Lining

of the cloud bank over head

out to sea I look

to the pewter of the waves

The Sun is out, clouded

casting Its own Silver

across the rippled sky

CLOUD RISE

The Hawk Queen Bed 7:57am

We had a magnificent sunrise

this morning — actually cloud rise —

the billowing clouds along the horizon

were banked by lesser streaks

& the sun’s light glared out behind

illuminating the bulbous edges

— it even had rays shining out & up —

— but We never saw the sun —

it got caught

7:20am GREETING

The Hawk Window Seat 8:30am

I watched for The sun

along the glowing horizon

& when It sparked, It bounced

& shouted out, “Good Morning!”
