Waiting, Day 5

a haze of dream
   built upon
confederate sky
   a blister of cloud
hanging by

as dream illumines
   a silvered moment
encapsulated entirely
   by sered husk
of ageless smiles
blooming toward dawn

the expanse of sky
holds me riveted
a moment passes too soon

My daughter has Dengue Fever on a small island in Thailand.  She was hospitalized yesterday. So I wait and pray as I look at the sky

  17. So many moments pass too soon, and then those, while we wait, can seem like forever. I hope she is on the mend very soon, and you can exhale.... A lovely write.
