eos’ dawn

June 12, 2010

tell me where your dreams sleep,
this sweet insomnia has me
daydreaming past midnight.

waiting for morning to break

eos
holds your breathing
at the edge of the ocean.
i watch the sunrise
between your breasts.

i take the morning
dew from your lips,
to sweeten my coffee.

a new day has dawned
in the morning song
of your love.

Notes: Eos is, in Greek Mythology, the Titan Goddess of the dawn.
This piece was inspired by a poem from a fellow poet friend Frank Ulloa.
