it's a snap
~painting and haiku © cathy jones tittle
dog days of summer
air lies heavy on your skin
crickets sing dirges
sultry darkness spills over
....sweetness is tasted...
dominated sky, gray clouds
blue patch bursts the seam
nature's eye opens
consciousness approaches slowly.
as the morning light approaches the sky,
she breathes softly next to me.
the birds awaken and greet the dawn...
she rolls into my side, hiding her head under my shoulder,
remaining locked in Morpheus' arms.
I lie quietly, listening to the cadence of her breathing
remembering the moments of her life
since she first entered mine.
