Morning's Best




First kiss of morning:


Blinds drawn,
                    doors closed,


Coffee machine,
                        waits.


Night clothes,
                     scattered.



Skin,
       red quilt warm.



Lips soft,
              slightly swollen.


Tan lines sharp,
                       coconut scent .


Blue eyes blink slowly,
                                   ocean shallows,
                                                           r i p p l e (less).


Lone blonde curl,
                           misplaced.
                                          


Whispered smile,
                           flavors sweet,
                                                breath.


First kiss of morning.
