Poem: Sunrise Bloom by Mark Tulin

Night Princess
cradled in her own
form-fitted green cactus bed
while I’m in my Posturepedic
tossing and turning

When I awake
and my drowsy eyes burst open,
you have already bloomed,
embracing the day’s arrival 
and a new beginning

You greet me with a yellow smile
as I get into my steely blue car.
You quietly curl back into bed
just as I start another workday.

Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
