Like Golden Ribbon – A Poem


Swirls of golden ribbon

Weaving in, out & around

my hands, my eyes, my heart

Enveloping me in a warm

brilliance like that of the Sun.


A warm light from within me shows

as I touch my hand to yours

You smile & turn to pass it on-

And it in response it grows.


A unity never seen before

we band our hands tightly

Fingers like sunbeams glow

against a midnight-lit society


& sunshine spills like glitter

across a field of daffodils

As we lift our hands together

like that of a new-age dawn.

  1. Your ribbon of sun reminds me of Emily Dickinson’s sun rising “one ribbon at a time.”
