Dawn is drawn upon the rocks
where breakers still recede,
yet cling in dewy ocean mists
that soon to day concede.
Dappled greys of morning haze
deny the dawning light,
yet twist in trickster mistress’ hands,
seduced to blue on white.
Rolling cape exposed at nape
of neck in blushing sun,
bathes in morning’s warming glory
in cheeks of rose where love’s blood runs.
Kindly sigh the seagulls’ cries
that welcome home the crisp new day,
rise to exult heaven found,
kissed in dawning’s warming play.
Set in peace this sweet release
adrift in sacred sound,
where sun and shore embrace me,
as in their love I fully drown.

sounds like a good place of drowning…i like the dance in your words…and the progression in this is like the dawning of the sun….
Thanks Brian, the dawning of the sun is exactly it… every little shade and shred of night seduced away with the morning sun… thanks for commenting.
