my other improper lover

i drift by the window in the east room on this dim early morning
& suddenly, the bright new-rising sun kisses me smack on the lips,
so quickly that i yield & open fully in delighted surprise!
the sun is just above the horizon & it holds on to me for
a solid minute: such a deep soul kiss we exchange! i am filled with
tender light & i overflow into a song of praise to the sun.

the clouds must be very jealous, because they rush right in & cover
up the sun's shiny face behind layers & fingers & fists of clenched
dark clouds. they throw loud thunder & vivid lightning across the wide sky
& lay down thick heavy sheets of hard rain & hail & wind, darkening
the sky even more as i watch the impromptu cloud tantrum play out.

perhaps it may be improper to enjoy a deep sweet soul kiss with
the sun, yet so be it. that kiss ignited my needy heart & blessed the
entire day with its majestic spontaneity & exquisite
timing! i think that the sun must be in friendly cahoots with Shiva,
my other improper lover, for they both can be so surprising!

  1. Love the title and what it means to you…That first kiss of the sun is so beautifully described and even if you had others sitting in the east room at the time, you were singled out for a celestial flirtation of the highest kind.:) Well of course you were! You started a whole “high-school drama” by responding to that kiss…and the clouds loitering jealousy, began to intervene.. Only you my breaker of celestial hearts, the darling pampered one of the Most High…because, only you could cause such meteorological envy and obstruction. You who feel the depth of every minute, the subtle forces that constantly remind you..how much you are truly loved ❤️🤗🌈
