The Crimson Lips Of Dawn

The crimson lips of dawn
Have kissed the morning sky
Making it turn red with blush
As clouds go whisping by

The colors are magnificent
With hues of orange and red
The yellow from the rising sun
Puts night time shades to bed

The ocean gives reflection
With its diamond coated waves
Pipers dance a ballet
And the seagulls act like knaves

Further in the traffic 
Of the city starts to flow
The hustle and the bustle
People moving to and fro

The noise is quite abundant
There's confusion all around
There is no peace and quiet
Only inner city sounds

But then the dawn moves westward
Toward the mountains and the plains
The wheat feilds stand and wave their hands
As breezes sing refrains

This is where I long to be
When lost inside my mind
Nesting with the eagles
In a lonely mountain pine

Or camped along the riverside
Fishing with the bears
I'll build a dam with beavers
And I'll climb some mountain stairs

And I'll chase the sun. If must, I'll run
To reach the western sea
To find if crimson lips will kiss
The setting sun for me

Rockman   :-)

    Dear Rockman - Thank you for your comment and suggestion about my sea poem. I think it's right on. This poem is beautiful and I think a little like mine in flavor. 'Seagulls act like knaves' is inspired. I"ve just had a knee replacement and only now have seen your comment. I'm slowly getting back to my e-mails. love, Kathy p,s, I'll come back and read more.

    Enjoyed the above verse, paying a wee bit more attention to syllable count and meter would even make it better! [I was into life role play for years in the SCA are you familiar?] Light & Love
