happy birthday #quadrille #148

the park breathes
fogging morning’s windowpane:
chiffon and light,  
a lemon slice
dispelling yellow

we'll dip gratefully
into autumn
doona deep
our faces smoothed
by the chill air

a contrail in pink
wallpapers the 
middle distance with kisses

i'm counting galahs
before you wake

Quadrille written for dVerse Whimsy Gizmo’s “Papered Poems”
