Faithful

By Shawn R. Jones

 

Yellow shines

between the blinds

lighting her brown skin

beneath her pale orange gown.

Dark hills stand

to greet the morning man

she spent the night warming

till the blue jay cried outside

the windowpane.

During the day, she

respectfully

sundresses her treasures,

saves his pleasures,

and honors

their name.
