meet delight –
to witness streetlights
kissing the river –
they are fishing

I've missed a few, but happy to read this one, to imagine those 'streetlights/kissing the river'.ReplyDelete
"streetlights kissing the river" is my favorite part along with "inkspill waters." Gorgeous!ReplyDelete
"Kissing the river...fishing for wishes." This may be one of my favorite pairings for the month. Love the painting and the poem! I was not familiar with this painting, but I love it!ReplyDelete
