(g) LIGHT; Gleaned Gleaming (12.2)

“A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

LIGHT; Gleaned Gleaming
Nanni series inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson

In the darkest commuter hour;
Homeward, you are bound –
With headlamps upon
Your motorized steed

Almost full the moon’s
Reflective light
Cannot compare with
The glow you bring to me

Opening the front door
The porch light highlights
Your outline jumping
Into our joined embrace

Reflecting the ceiling lamp
The pots lining the stove
Wait for me to dish up
The gleaning of cooked love

Once sated and filled
Our charmed smiles can,
Without thinking at all
Retreat to our nestling

The Naani is a four line poem with 20-25 syllables.
The first two lines provide the subject that
the next two bring to an interesting close.
