A string of clear pearls
line scarlet leaves
waiting for the sun’s warmth
to release them

I’m privy to this magic
on yet another early morn
when the sky’s eyes
are barely awake

Poetry is my first love. Inspired by intuition & my chunky ginger cat. My favorite place is by the sea, sipping espressos and daydreaming.
