I sit in my kitchen 
with a cup of tea,
while the world 
is still asleep,
and there in the darkness, 
I  wait for you 
in a state of tranquility.

Soon - a drop 
of magenta  seeps,
into a sea of black,
as it  bleeds and bleeds,
in multiple streams,
bringing the daylight back.

Then from the base, 
of a purple line,
where the sea and earth
meet  sky,
a blazing ball of fire appears,
nearly blinding my eyes,
and the night -  in a flash -  

Higher and higher,
that ball of fire,
rises into the sky;
setting the boughs
of the pines ablaze,
in shades of red,
and golden rays,
beneath a sky
now royal blue
as I watch the sun
rise in the East
and dream - again,
of you.

    -Higher and higher, that ball of fire, rises into the sky; of the pines ablaze, in shades of red, and golden rays, beneath a sky now royal blue- A----MAZING imagery! You better get to publishing that one girl. Seldom I run across a vital "Blazing Beat" as this! Take care of your work and make share of your work. The world needs to hear your fingers bleed.

    Truly beautiful Elaine. I have to get out of my house to see the full sunrise. Wish we had turned our house around when we built it. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce

    A vibrant write, Elaine. At first I thought it was about poetical inspiration, though now feels more inclined towards a soulful longing. Whichever, this is a dandy piece! Beautiful imagery, Elaine. Best wishes, Mikki
