#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

Sun Rising on the River

Sun Rising on the River

my love is for lightness
of touch foot feather
the day is yet one more yellow leaf
and without turning I kiss the light
by an old well on the last of the month
gathering wild rose hips
in the sun

– W. S. Merwin, Excerpt from, “The Love for October”

Migration: New and Selected Poems (Copper Canyon Press, 2005).
