Aubade For My Father - Published in Kentucky Review 2014

Aubade For My Father             

you rise in sepia
like sun through empty trees
sycamore ghost

gold words scroll across your aura
I hear them through the camera of your eyes
leather and roses - stained glass and ink

poet who never read poetry
who taught me how to see
the vanishing luminous muse

I echo you back from
borders of namelessness singing
your name in my sleep

when you return
trailing mists of morning
I will know that you are still
a watcher of the dawn
