In scarlet dawn

If I have the time, I’ll wait eons, to greet you in scarlet dawn As you marvel its vermillion garb embossing marigold arc Emanating golden sparks, piercing hazy contours of dark While gilded ripples glisten pond, where floats a snazzy swan. Listen I’ll, to the music of morn, in songs of gentle breeze Quivering new growth on barren trees where chickadees sing Shedding dread of winter, in adoration of vibrant spring As you thrill in waltzing hills, where green conifers wheeze. Ambling through idyllic meadows of my coveted dreams I’ll emerge in gilt-sunshine on silken petals glinting dew Where pink and purple rosy blooms enliven to enchant you-- Meeting you where giggling streams glitter in amber beams. By your side in a quiet spot, I’ll watch the sparrows fly by Hopping from branch to branch in euphoric random dance Scurrying suddenly in curvy flight, inviting your glance Celebrating freedom, flying high, into expansive blue sky, And compose a chapter of doting allegory in romantic glory Lingering in hearts where cadent verses of desires sway Turning up the tempo, letting life’s ravishing rhythms play As hours and days accumulate slowly, into eternal love-story. December 17, 2019 Placed 1st: If you have the time for an enclosed rhyme poetry contest Sponsor: Tania Kitchin HM: Strand select 10 contest by Brian Strand
