Drink the Concoction of Dawn

Drink the Concoction of Dawn

A Poem by Bluerealis

Sunrises are the most magical things of creation. I could write a thousand, and probably will write a thousand, poems about them.


Drink the concoction that dawn spills every morn.

Savour the harvest of new light born.

Dawn's fingers of illumination carry the fresh and fallen dew,

the beads of silver slipping from its stalks of gold.

Breathe the spices of the bright, brewed air,

wallow in the harmony of the awakening.

The concrete paths are swallowed in the sun's soft flame,

darkness engulfed by the morning jaw.

Step into the morning pool, bathe in the rising sun.

The glittering ribbons of day dance around your soul,

lifting you, raising you, teaching you more.

Sun's blanket of hair shed down to the earth,

gently weaved into a tapestry of light.

Drink the concoction that dawn spills every morn,

savour the harvest of new light born.

Author's Note

Every time I try to write what I feel as I wake up and start my day in the sunrise, it never comes out right at all. Although this one didn't come out how I wanted it to at all (it has little structure and it feels scattered) I still think it's reasonably "pretty." It's freelance--I don't like constraining myself to rhyme, although rhythm I try. But if something doesn't feel right with the rhythm, sometimes I still leave it in there. Sometimes I feel like when I read poetry that flows too nicely I almost get distracted by it and lose my focus on the poem's meaning.

One word: Gorgeous. You've painted the perfect picture, not just of sight, but of smells and touch and taste and sensations that can only awaken in the spirit. You're amazing at describing a beautiful scene and making it come back to us tenfold. Post more, please. I love it. If I could rate it, I would definitely give it up in the high nineties!
