A Peaceful Hush (her morning)

A Poem by Richard

Mollietta

A Peaceful Hush

Through sheer lace curtains
 sunlight greets her eyes,
 to early dove song’s
 cooing calls to rise.

A stretch, or two,
 the shutters then thrown wide ...
 life’s splend'rous wonders
 on display outside.

Lies morning dew’s brocade
 spread 'cross the lawn ...
 caught in each drop
 glints sunbeams'
 spark'ling dawn.

Rise steamy mists,
 in ghostly arabesques ...
 stand floral colours,
 tall and statuesque.

Wends warmly through …
 a gentle breeze’s brush,
 whilst all around takes on
  … a peaceful hush.

I love reading your poetry and then learning about the structure you used, which I always sense in the background, but does not overtake the beauty or flow of the words. This is a visual delight, and I see everything described, hear and feel nature awakening my senses as if I am in that front yard. I am so swept into that experience, I no longer notice there is a person there also seeing all this through her window, and at some moment I wonder what she is thinking when she looks out- I don't remember what called me back to her. I have several whimsical thoughts- an answering poem- like call and response, you know, of the man standing in his front yard, also experiencing the morning and then catching sight of her. Or of her night, when she closes the shutters after taking in the hush that falls late in the evening, after everyone has fallen asleep. I guess I want to hear more of this place, or her, like you want to know the story behind a beautiful and mesmerizing painting. Thank you so much for that morning, ss I sit here in my morning, waking up.

Very beautifully written, sir. Everything can be imagined- sunlight coming through the lace curtains and greeting the lady's eyes, dew outside- on the grass. A nice poem, with vivid descriptions of the nature and other happenings. The rhyme scheme is nice, plus the form is commendable.

Well you're very welcome. :)
soft, tender and beautiful! I love the ending:
a gentle breeze’s brush,
whilst all around takes on
… a peaceful hush.

I must try to do a "Mollietta" some time, but it seams complicated! May be I will try in Portuguese first!

You've aptly named this beautiful piece. The quite times of dawn, as if the gods made it to contemplate your coming day. You paint a vivid image of the birth of a new day. As always your quill has grace.

This poem is eternal, in its silence, its serenity, in its love. The loveliest aspect which adorns this poem is its perception, perception of one everyday act of waking up, and seeing your beloved in all their splendor and natural magnificence, seeing them beautifully flow into the loveliness and kindness of nature. Such a simple act has been captured so tenderly with words. It's full of awe, it's full of gratitude, it's summer in veins, and in spirit. I'ts so calming, and it glides, the poem honestly glides like those lace curtains! Thank you for such an amazing and magnified perception and experience, there's beauty in simplicity and it is so wonderfully explicated and shown, that my mind has imagined 10 thousand little pictures cut out in hearts and cupcakes,lol. Thank you for such an exquisite poem, what an intricate and delicious view of life and love! :)

Lots of love and warm hugs!

I always learn something new in your poems and today as no different, thank you for utilizing "Mollietta", I didn't know about it! You're full of wonder and amazement, Richard, truly you're!
