The flames of dawn

The flames of dawn peek over heartbreak hill
Leaving the embers of love scattered  across  the ground
The fire's warmth is replaced by a chill
The spark of love is nowhere to be found

Nothing  remains  to kindle my desire
Left with only the ashes of what used to be
No chance of rekindling the fire
That once blazed between you and me

A fiery sunset paints the sky with orange hues
Its glorious blaze now a flicker on the sea
Like our love it slowly sinks out of view
Its dying flame leaving me melancholy

But the flames of love will one day blaze anew
And rise to light the dawn of  a love that's true

    Joseph. You wrote a very beautiful sonnet and I don't say that too often to sonnet writers. I just love the words you chose and the imagery.
