Cherish

I relish the countless hours
Dreaming and scheming,
Lazing and gazing,
Doing nothing
But peering outside.
Grateful for
Everyday miracles;
Like a sudden shock of birds,
Sunlight clasping the wineglass
And the gilt touch
Of memory
Melting
Life’s frozen fields.

I relish it all –
The beauty to be savoured,
The loving to be had,
The joy and pain entwined,
The stories that last.

Great wonder fills me
As I stare and compare;
Living in the moment
Aware of colour
Alert to magic
Awakened to desire
And the persistent pulse
Within and without.
Crying with supple hands,
To be kissed and cherished
In the thawing light.
