Dawn In early morning when I rise Through my window in twilight skies A lilac sky begins from gray Descending from our milky way. When Sol awakens, shows his face; Delivers magic with his grace In colors borne from rainbow hues, My eyes are filled with stunning views. With trembling hands I hold my tea In breathless wonders that I see As blues arrayed from dark to light Relinquish stars in morning bright As golden fingers touch the land I feel the power of God's hand Embrace my shoulders and my hair And feel the freshness in dawn's air. I wait until sweet tangerine Of tempered eye cannot be seen Hidden behind the cloudy clime With thoughts of colors so sublime. As I begin my busy day I first reserve some time to pray In gratitude of our dear earth In viewing dawn's glorious birth. 7-21-18 1. Paint your horizons happy

I was thrilled with my first placement John, as not many got to see this poem and it didn't win in two different contests. Thank you very much. : ) xxoo

Indeed painted beautifully, "Relinquish...", how a simple verb can energize a phrase to life Connie--image be Sandy Beach?--and my compliments to your placement, Aloha William

I appreciate your wonderful comment William. It does look like Sandy Beach some, but I am not sure where the photo was taken. I got it from the net. My husband used to surf at Sandy Beach long ago in younger years. Mahalo, Connie

Gorgeous write, Connie, and I love Paul's Turner comparison - it fits perfectly! (And Turner is near the top of my favs list since I was a child). Your descriptive mastery and unusual imagery is always a joy, and I am NEVER disappointed when I open a poem of yours. This is going to my favs! Blessings, Friend! :-) <3
