incandescent eye candy


the I of these eyes
is flaming eastern sky
scarlet and coral
(gone so quickly!)
now quietly deeply blue
with scattered puffs of gold


looking up again
now they are apricot
now palest cream
now luminous white

and now the fingers of an immense light
reach over the eucalypts and into this little room

a new day has dawned!
