lightly touch (solace)

a kiss
from the warming sun

golden gleams
hold the touch
of dawn

I stand
eyes closed
and basking

there is peace
within the falling ray

solace in the touch
of light

who can think . . .


at such a moment

a motor roar
is streaming past
too close
(about a million miles)
but I can tune it out

can tune me

can call the clouds

can call birds
to sing

I can be
in solace . . .

solace . . .

at the touch
at the kiss
of light

  1. Frank, as our country worries about what to do about a wayward President and his wayward followers, this is the most comforting piece I’ve read in the past 4 or 5 days! Thank you for this glimmer of hope!

      • It’s been one of those weeks — can’t watch what’s going on, but can’t pull yourself away! Stay tuned for the next couple of weeks (or more) — I don’t think we’ve seen the last of this yet. The House of Reps is likely to impeach if Trump doesn’t resign (not likely), and if Pence doesn’t invoke the 25th amendment. There is a feeling of urgency finally to get him out of office ASAP!
