30 Poems for National Poetry Month: Day 20

April 20, 2013

20Here is my poem for Day 20:

 

Nightmares end.

Last night’s surreal

Scenes stopped abruptly

Segued into pages

From “The Song of Songs,”

And my love sleeping

In my arms again.

Morning comes with the hush

Of a spring rain, a chill breeze,

And robins and starlings

Vying for attention.

I pull my love closer.

Her head on my chest,

Her dreams in my heart.

 

–Scott Edward Anderson
