Lauds–Poetic Bloomings, Day 2

The theme for Poetic Bloomings, Day 2, is smiles of a summer night. I trust that, though is was morning here when this came to mind, it was night somewhere. So, I turn the world upside down.

earth greets summer morning
sun with a smile
i fall into their embrace
kiss dappled shadows
dancing with the climbing rose

oriole sips nectar
you reach to take my hand
all the while buried
in the sports page

i sing heart-praise
sip coffee
