as night turned to day

as night turned to day

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

as night turned to day

 

 

your smile resurrected my heart

the stone stoic eyes

had grown so cold and unseeing

 

but you unclosed my den of hibernation

and in the dazzling phosphorescence 

i became human again

Most welcome Jacob!
A thought can work either way of someone, turning night into day or day into night! Bit like heads or tails with a coin!

This reminds me of being with someone special, wide awake all night, then when dawn finally shimmers, it puts a whole wondrously different slant on what just happened! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Jacob... I believe Spring has seduced your heart
when buds open so mysteriously, and we see the
beauty of love unfolding... violets and petticoats
dance in the wind and summer begins with
undercurrents of possibilities. An endearing poem.
truly, Pat
