Aubade: Suisun Valley

“Love is not mere emotion or sentiment. It is the lucid and ardent response of the whole man.” 
Thomas Merton

Waves of grey light
wash over our small valley.

Cool morning
sea-born breeze prevails
for now.

High-toned birds wait
for the golden sun to ignite
our swaying trees.

Only in the darker eves
do I hear the mourning dove’s
steady moan.

In silver-blue tones,
he bids his love
