it is morning

it is morning

A Poem by Lydia


artwork by korpita





it is morning

the ocean wears a dress of fire

its lace border of foam undulates as i watch

rosy light washes over the world

the vibrant colors of life feed me

reborn with the day

i am made of light

oh, and my parents genes of course

on a day as bright as this one

there must only be good thoughts

so why do my cheekbones feel my mother’s smile

even as my father’s blue eyes fill with tears

Even on the happiest and brightest days, a cloud (lursmd nroks - haven't a clue what that means, fingers slipped for sure!) somewhere, and, alters the heartbeat. Thinks i meant 'lurks and knocks!'

You have a way, a gift, of making the senses feel that bit more.. or more than. Sad, yet wonderful writing. Hug on its way by Pond Post.

Zowie! What an unexpected right hook at the end! I was mesmerized all along, but then the stark ending leaves one with trailing thoughts to chew on! I love all the different notes of passionate feeling conveyed here (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Never know when emotions are going to attack, do you, Margie? :) Thanks for the review. Lydi**
dear Lydi🦋... I can only dream of sitting by the sea... wondering why the sea wears a dress of fire... how appropriate.., my mother's smile... my fathers tears... it all seems clear..,
we ponder the change a day can bring... to challenge each new day and find a way where foam is flowers embracing a new day. truly, Pat

Yes, the dress of fire....unfortunately your cottage wore that and it was not pretty. Today is a ch.. read more
I just think it's the sea.
Every feeling, every memory is in there.
It's why we can just sit and watch it all day.
Hypnotising in a good way.

Thank you very much, Anand. Lydi**
Ironic, how even on the sunniest of days, sadness touches one, unexpectedly. Perhaps, its the absence of those who loved us most selflessly. Your words build up like a wave to crash on the shore, bringing home with them the sorrow felt. The picture is beautiful too.
