Television off, and the radio,
this house a temple tonight
not a mausoleum

A heart's distance away
she lies asleep and dreaming
with me awake and wishing

Breath sounds, softly below
a train horn muffled through walls
keeping cold out and love in

She coughs, my heart races,
wondering at the cause,
sheets rustle, small angelic sigh

the world becomes sacred

Ladies and gentlemen, if my math is correct, this is my 200th consecutive post in 200 days. I don't know how I arrived here...it's been a long, strange trip. Whew.

    absolutely angelic and heart tugging
    and have I told how much I adore the tag
    My God Shes Full Of Stars?
