Dawns Gifts

Silver shimmers reflected by the sea When dawn kisses each silhouetted tree. As sunrise pierces fleecy clouds of blush A canvass bides the eager artist's brush. Our Banyon bids adieu to fowl in flight... Their songs reverberate in morning light Attesting to the joy each dawn excites In explosive colors which Sol ignites. As breezes blow through azure skies above I share divinely Dawn's sweet gifts of love. 12-24-21 'STRAND NO 1042' Contest~First Place~ Sponsor Brian Strand Merry Christmas (Mele Kalikimaka) from Hawaii….Aloha

Dawn is my most favourite part of the day, Dear Connie! And you have painted a picture of dawn with exquisite imageries. "When dawn kisses each silhouetted tree. As sunrise pierces fleecy clouds of blush" - these images took my breath away! Love and hugs ~ Mala

Thank you very much Jo. The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking here where the trade winds keep the air clean most of the time, except when our volcano is real active and we get Kona wind. I truly appreciate the Fave my friend. Have a blessed new year. xxoo

You are so obviously an art and nature lover, Connie! They are joined here so seamlessly as you paint your brushstrokes of words and stroke your poetic magic of colorful phrases and images. My favorites are "When dawn kisses each silhouetted tree" and "I share divinely Dawn's sweet gifts of love". Such a gift you have and such a gift you are. Going in my faves. Have a blessed New Year ~ John

Thank you so very much for thinking this poem worthy of a fave. It did not show up, but lately my comments have also not shown up, when I am positive I posted some. Your comment means the most to me John. They are like poetry to me. I do love the arts in all modes. I used to sculpt and draw until my children made their appearance. Then there was just no time for a working mother. New year blessings to you and yours my friend. xxoo
