Joy

A cup of coffee

from a white

porcelain mug

bitter blended

2 teaspoons of sugar

with a splash of milk

gently awakening

the senses

Hoping the day

is as good as

the first sip

Releasing

You are not

your thoughts

Breathe

release

Clear

the static

with love.

Coração

I love you

like

the amount of grains

in the sand

like

the amount of times

the waves

crash ashore

like

the oxygen

that trees produce

because my heart

feels so happy

when I’m

with

you.

Dawn’s serenity

Waking up

in love’s embrace

smiling at his

sleeping silhouette

joy circulating

through my body

Cleansing

The ocean

called to her

to heal the

impurities and

insecurities

washing them

away

like foam

on the shore

Inception

Poems

are puzzles

of interlocking

pieces of

Imagery

Sound

and sentiment

Remedy

Looking for an antidote

for being jaded

To discern wisdom

from cynicism

seeking

healing

light

to wield

together

the broken pieces.
