A Peaceful Hush (her morning)

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.

Richard, Of coarse your poem was Beautiful as always but the best part for me was learning the new beautiful word. " Wends" I'm afraid it stole the show :-) Yet actually the one words empresses your whole poem. Almost as though you wrote the poem to express the word.

I listened to the song on YouTube - the one I watched was from the 60's and was an experience in itself! What a beautiful and peaceful song and what a voice!
On to your lovely and equally peaceful poem! I feel the celebration of the day in this. The time to take in the glorious and intricate simplicity of the awakening of day. You convey a feeling of "all is right with the world" and it was like a breath of fresh air. Your skill with words and form is amazing...

Ethereal; a moment of daily life is honored here with your inspired words. The dew, the doves, the steam emanating from the lawn--things that pass us by daily but seldom are appreciated for their grace. I am not a poet so I can't offer critique. I especially adore this:
"Rise steamy mists,
in ghostly arabesques ...
stand floral colours,
tall and statuesque."

Thanks for sharing,
LMC

a beautiful form and flow, and lovely images. Yet somehow it seemed to lack any deep emotion or feeling to me.

OOPS!
I meant "subjective" in both my comments, as you said, Marcus.
Lovely, Richard, as always. I can figure out the Mollietta to some extent, but it would be good to know the rules before attempting one.

Another beautifully constructed poem Richard. I love the seamless flow of the alliteration and the short end lines to bring out the power of the words that follow. Great work.
