Photon

by John M. Marshall


The annular ascension of a mountain morning’s journey
to the star-lift

Sun dogs within the sky-mist
enclose the Queen of Cups

(she is you)

Forest fire-tresses
Parallax of light
White dwarf expulsion

(chromas of her caresses)

Laughter seeps from the wood

(intrepid endeavor
to make love’s dream endless)

Rapture rings from the rocks

(valiant venture
to sing love’s song forever)

Skater and skywriter
piecing their transparent puzzle together
(continuous spectrum)
