Morning Love

Evanescent – Word of the Day


Post dawn, winter morn, looking east across the Blackwood. Dawns come and go, I’m asuming there’ll be one tomorrow, and even when I’m gone, they will continue. But this one faded into day, as they all do. Dawn has a fleeting beauty, which accentuates its attraction. For me whatever the day holds, it cannot beat the beauty of that dawn moment, it is something very special.


Morning Loveย 

Just as yesterday,
we agreed to see each other again.
The promise of one more time.
To catch even a glimpse of you,
my heart beats.
And, you came along.
though I never really doubted.
No, really, I didn’t.
And there you were,
Suddenly revealing all of you.
Your warmth and beauty wholly divine,
embracing my fragile longing,
an ancient ache,
to hold on to you,
momentarily assauged.
And yet,
no sooner have you arrived than you are leaving,
fading into the crowded day,
Neaera folding into Helios.
Though my eyes have telegraphed my heart,
and your beauty is captive,
a tenuous hold,
but at least a memory.
Till tomorrow then,
As again you will awaken my soul.

    Really beautiful poem. Reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe’s type of poetry – hope you don’t mind!

    I love dawn too. But I miss it mostly because I enjoy long lie-ins!

  4. Amazing piece ๐Ÿ™‚ My only advice would be to put the opening paragraph at the end instead of before the poem. I think that getting the surprise that you are talking about dawn after imagining the daily meeting of two lovers would make the poem even more interesting ๐Ÿ™‚ But that’s just my opinion… xx
