Waking

A tender slice of dream
perches  on the surface of morning
before dissipating.


This is for IGRT and Grapeling's challenge to use words from his list.  I've used the words Tender, Slice, Perch and Surface.  There are many more though, so click on the link and check out the whole list.

  6. Your poem reminds me of the exercise where one fills in a noun, verb, adjective, etc to form sentences and poetic expression. I think this form can be programmed to create, also.
    But on the subjective side, I like the poem and its wonderful photo.
    This dock needs a dive off of. . .
