A view from the galaxy

head upon the downy pillow
underneath the weeping willow
by the bubbling river’s greening bend

the filtered sunlight slanting down
you brought to me a daisy crown
I wished this merry moment not to end

the leaves a-flutter, summer snowing
sleepy syllables of knowing
our sundering and silences to end

and now, we’ll pick the periwinkles
and walk home in the starry twinkles
the nightingales and whippoorwills attend

I’ll cradle your endearing face
you’ll swear to me, upon this place
we’ll stay until our hearts will fully mend

 

Lee Dunn View All

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
