East to west (and back again)

East to west (and back again)

A Poem by Jack...
"

A beautiful sunrise with thoughts of someone you care deeply about.

"

East to West (and back again)

 

Not even a voice, merely words on a page,

a welcome, a smile, waiting as I lift my eyes

From slumber, kicking out the last of my dreams,

only to find that they do not end

 

Orange sherbet skies paint my windows

above yawning tree lines at the end of a dirt road

Persimmon outlined shadows

dance about my walls inviting me to look

 

I grab my cup, hot but needed, step into my shoes

passing through to morning, taking a sip…

I find more beauty than my eyes have seen,

while birds flit from branch to branch

 

The air is cool, unusual but so very pleasant,

heated days form in my memories of yesterday,

when cool springs were no match for the flamed heavens…

yet perfection now touches my skin

 

And I see, before me not a morning, not a brilliant sunrise

but you…your words, your touch, finding me at a distance,

telling me that this day is ours, beyond horizons…

East to west and back again…for the beauty of my day is always you

Thanks so very much Sye. Your smile on my page always brings one to my face.
I'm not a morning person. I've decided to stay in bed since Saturday morning. Hopefully tomorrow will be different... :P So I especially admire this piece. The fact that you actually find something beautiful about a morning is incredible. Great work, Jack!

Thank you so very much.
A very romantic look at Morning. I thought at first it might be a Sun poem but I see it is more of a long distance romance. Very nice as always Jack.

I love poems that speak purely through images, which believe it or not is hard to accomplish. This poem makes me wish it was dawn all over again. good write!

Thank you so very much for your visit and your kind words.
Great imaginative writing...the description of a beautiful day as the sun rises in the east emitting ' orange sherbet' hues as the subject is stirred by memories and strong emotions of a lover he yearns to embrace once more !

A sterling write once more Jack !
