Noticing the Sun


Early sun blinks on the diagonal of my window seat,

tapping pillows softly, wake up-
It dances out in my garden 
above  the oak leaf hydrangea,
creating varied hues of green,
encouraging soft conical blossoms to open.
Uneven stripes of light and shadows
stretch across the lawn.
Look closely,
the  brightness calls glistening sparkles of grass
 to attention.
How quickly sun changes as it slides itself into day.
Like dressing for work, no time for play.
Stripes soften and light plays puddle like 
over dried blades.
It filters through ferns 
laying delicate cut paper designs 
about the soil floor.
Can you remember 
the warmth of evening sun
as it rests on your back 
at the end of the day?
