~ Dawn Dawning


~ Dawn Dawning
Toes filter frothy foam

Low tide relaxes

As if a pulled back sheet,

Undines waken waves

With a magical flicker

Here, there, here, there

Eyes absorbed in beauty

Dare not blink –

Beauty is rare…

And I see her

Crossing the waves

I

 

Stretching, Dawn yawned

Light plays upon horizons

Sirens seeking sailors

II

 

Scarlet sky speaks Death

Tumultuous waves clashing

Cries for “Mother” fade

 

III

Calm the Sea beds floor

Sailors heads hung in defeat

Singing Hymns to Sea.

Haiku Cyclet Alliteration – Souls of the Sea


Haiku Cyclet Alliteration – Souls of the Sea
Severed sailors souls

Sirens song seeps, saturates

Sea swallowing ships
Liquid lines linger

Loquacious liaison 

Languishing life’s left
Craggy cliffs calling

Captains conjuring courage 

Capitulation

Dappled glint of light

Canopy of forest greens

Undines grace a pond

~ Muse of My Morning


~ Muse of My Morning
Muse of my morning

Restoreth my soul

Night has held me fast…

With waking dreams –

Mysterious things
Open wide your arms

Beckon Dawn wake

From silent starlit slumber…

Tossing her veil

That light shall prevail
With blessed beams streaming

Omnipotent God with a thousand fingers

Comforts, a touch of warmth palpable;

I’ll question not an infinite sky

The unexplainable, mysterious…”why?”
Rather bask in the beauty

Of Dawns glorious resurrection

While conquering dreaded Night;

Friend of some, foe of plenty

When sleeplessness robs so many
Muse of my morning

Restoreth my soul

Night has held me fast…

With waking dreams –

Mysterious things.

~ Laten Years


~ Laten Years
Would that thou shalt love me in my laten years

Oblivious to Times wrinkles – youthful, in comparison to my peers
And when these eyes no longer see, an Antigone wilt thou be for me

Leading me though darkened fears, ’til acceptance of aging clears
To settle in this vessel, shell, a scared soul seeking Gods good will

A guide, a lamp before my feet, wilt thou these requests meet
And leave me not alone, but sing me…sing me home?

~ Midnight Monologue 


~ Midnight Monologue
Beneath the waxing moon –

Womb of Nights sky

I am infant, small

Watching over me?

A billion blazing stars –

Nights eyes scattered,

Crossing an infinite canvas
Alone in my madness

My beautiful mad mind

Where life is questioned

Thought is provoked

Expanding consciousness –

Poetry sustains

Beauty found in fibers,

Weeping webs
Mist rises about my feet

Reminding me

I am grounded…

Firmly rooted

As the mystic Oak

Birch and Beech;

A Taurus 

Seeking solace in the sky:
Do the stars in their glory

Looking down

See us shine?

Know our finest hour?

Ponder our story?

Does their curiosity 

Blaze behind Dawns veil?
Alone?

I am not alone –

You are not alone –

We are not alone –

Alone would be a void

Insensate nothingness;

Never have I been more alive!

Here, in my madness

‘Neath a waxing moon,

Blazing sky!
The Creator

In conscious creativity 

Set within the human soul

An affinity 

For looking with upcast eyes

From which our comfort arrives.
