An Alba for Anna

The sun breaks on the Texas fields
For the first time for me when I
See you every day. A cavern-
Like darkness descends, a dreary
World of shadows, chains on a wall --
That was my one world without you.

You are no mere mirroring moon,
You're a sunny source of bright light --
Your creative color cascades
Brings life to my world, my nighttime.
The dawn -- you are the dawn, the light
That brings life, lingering, lovely.

Without you there are no new dawns --
Bare your breasts to bring the bright dawn
As the Hindu goddess does -- rose
Rays rising radiantly up
Into the sky's highest reaches.
Always bring me beautiful dawns!
