Poem Commentary

A hero can wrestle the wind yet never manage a take down. A willow might bend and a favorable breeze kiss his cheek.

Dawn

                                  Dawn


 One never knows what the dawn may bring
Faithfully adorned with reds and yellows
She cuts through the darkness of recent history like a well muscled hero;                    
 heroically incessant, never abandoning her desire to illuminate.
Her middle name is hope, her nick name, WAIT & SEE
Trails of the dead are but water marks on a blank page now

Broad daylight will bleach it bright
As if it just came off the stationers shelf
I will breath it in
Winds of chance and circumstance
will you sit by me?
An eagles heart awaits your draft

I heard someone say, "The harder I work, the luckier I get!"
If I should sell as many books as he
I guess I'm lucky too.
The dawn I see, has it's agenda
Invested in kind ... one for you,
and one for me.

Brief our hearts for mornings flight
Give us tarmac 'neath our feet
To know we're baptized in a rainbow
And that it smiles for all to see
We'd have done with tears of sadness;
Free to live for what can be

Blow winds of chance and circumstance
Your hope's relinquished all prepared
and your maker is a lover
Whose presence can be shared

There are elements and factors which are renewable if your perspective is available to refreshment: The dawn and hope are new every morining, whether you see them or not. If you aren't looking for hope, odds are it will not be found; and if one isn't up early enough or paying attention, the dawn will come on unnoticed. To find someone who shares the newness of dawn with you, is being able to treasure the event all the more, and hope in the same way is magnified. Thanks for an eye opening and heart openeing reflection in word!

"To know we're baptized in a rainbow And that it smiles for all to see" — a lovely surrealist line that would make Andre Breton smile. This poem is as refreshing as dawn's deep dew. And this line is simply playful: "The dawn I see, has it's agenda Invested in kind ... one for you, and one for me" — Peace and Light, Dah

What YOU say sure makes me smile :) Thank you.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
