Humming

The first breath lifts
me into awareness

Then, a sliver
cracks open into a diminute rainbow

A second later, two..

They find me inside a nest
of mismatched sheets

that bathe me in her scent

Still warm, her side
left her sinuous silhouette
lined with the gold of her hair

And then, a note
hanging in the air,
piercing softly through my stupor
wakes all my senses in her direction
announcing her nearness
