Stunning sunrise

Stunning sunrise

A Poem by Sally Edwards
"

I was inspired by one of Phil Sanders beautiful sunrise photos to write this poem. He has kindly let me use the photo with my poem. Thank you Phil.

"


It's a new day
finally on it's way
The sky is dark and brooding
with little shafts of light so soothing
Here comes a tiny peek
at the sunrise so meek

As dawn slowly unfolds
it no longer feels cold
Shimmering ribbons of gold
so beautiful and bold
Slivers of sunlight
banish another night

The golden orb is now up high
so beautiful it makes you sigh
Sky filled with hues of fiery red
so glorious,  you can't stay in bed
Absorb it all and wonder the beauty
as the world goes about it's daily duty

See the path of the reflection
going in the boat's direction
A path right through the boat
looking like a well worn coat
What beauty before our eyes
watching the stunning sunrise

Another excellent ode to Nature!
The sense of wonder (and almost veneration) is very well translated to the reader. Your poem also reinitiates us to the ceremonial of sunrise in a very subtle way. Yes, it is a new day, a new birth and a new hope for active persons to forge their life and destiny!
Thank you so much for giving us such beautiful images!

This is a great poem! It expresses the feel and sights of nature, which is always a good thing to have in a poem. I think that that second paragraph thing was absolutley beautiful. Heck, the whole poem was beautiful and it was just inspiring. It makes you want to think about what nature is turning into now. Pollotion, pollution, pollution. But back to a more peacful subject, this poem. I caught no spelling, grammar, or any other errors in this poem. I don't know if you were looking for those for this certain poem, but yeah. Anyways, GREAT POEM! I LOVED IT!
