- a fresh coat of welcome
morning calm shook us awake
as our shadows met somewhere in time
we danced a slow dance to the sound of quiet
like an old melody running through our heads
when i kiss you do you remember monterey
and how the water flowed onto the shore,
then turned away after only a moment?
do you reflect back to the sounds
as some distant foghorn bellows out of tune
unafraid to sing harmony
with the circling gulls and bellowing seals?
do you remember morning
as the sun paints a fresh coat of welcome
then colors it tangerine
and splashes it with red wine?
only our shadows met on this day
i will hold the palette of your morning
with colors borrowed from the sky
on a monterey background
and dream of touching your heart
