Photography by Celia Edell

At sunrise the light shines in
Through closed curtains
Illuminating sparkling dust
Floating in limbo through the air

Sepia toned beams
Upon your sun soaked dreamy face
You lay silently still
Your bare arm resting coolly upon my chest

Cobwebbed sleep kissed eyes
Open and tired, happily examining
Your pores, tiny hairs
Your freckle painted neck

Tracing shapes and patterns
Goosebumps shoot up and down your spine
A rocket of energy, my love
Flowing across your skin

Your lips, perfect petals
I watch your chest slowly
Rise and fall
Your body dances so serenely as you sleep
