At early dawn

I came to be...

with pen in hand

and a loving dream...

Echoing Resolve


____________________________


Easy river run
down vast beauty light
in morning dawn
crest before my eyes

For autumn rain has gone
sparking light of silver grace
now lay peaceful strokes
on hillside of new day

Each thought still remain
in splashed hues of poetic verse
a quenching bath of love
upon soft sky of birth

A Seed In The Wind


~



Years lost, the barren floor

a thousand poppies, shall live no more

through twilight's calm, a storm raged on

of flickering fire, before the dawn



Wither o' heights of careless breath

the evil wind, will give no rest

so burn my orange fire, burn of death

soon rebirth, shall find a nest

until that day, I stand subdued

where painted skies,

my only muse...

    Hehe, my captche says RYM8-- so cool since your poem is a cool rhyme, Rick :D -- I will have to let my juices stew and catch fire (I hope!! I am afraid they might fizzle out!!)

    This was fun and a little easier than I had envisioned. On the other hand, it may be just rubbish. Anyway, thanks for hosting this contest and getting me to do something I had not done before.
