This Day Has Just Begun
by Chelse  Elliot

When I awoke this morning 
wrapped in your arms 
the lavender sheets you bought 
reminded you of my poetry, 
My mind wandered the pathways 
of realization, 
seeking the sweet clarity 
of blinding love- 
Cuddled in a coma against you 
with your sleeping breath 
softly whispering in the tendrils 
of my hair 
In these fields of love you lie with me 
and your lips play my skin 
like a tambourine 
I tremble- 
and the ribbons of my soul 
flutter under your rhythmic touch 
How do you know the music 
that makes my heart sing? 
The composition of my soul is sacred unto me 
and, yet, you know the words 
and your fingers strum the chords 
with grace and gentle mastery. 
And more questions bloom like 
roses drinking the summer sun- 
Where did the loneliness go? 
Did you know your sapphire eyes 
are the exact color of the moment 
that the blue sky turns into 
the indigo night? 
Is it possible to tell you how 
I love you? 
Are there words in this world 
to express twirling joy as I lie
in the stillness of your arms? 
Wake my love, and kiss me again 
for the long lonely night has ended 
And the warmth of this day 
has just begun
