The Glory Of The Eastern Edge



In moments of twilight civility an exchange of gifts - darkness for light.. RISING from beyond the softening silhouetted edge you brighten like a blushing damsel hazy haloed taking unabashed pleasure in the ripening dawn daydreamer ...a vivid blur of lemon drop... is veiled by wispy fanfares of mares’ tails windswept forth in pinkened pageantry heralding the maturing marmalade horizon - and arousing a drowsing periwinkle sky your prosperous glow casts a molten net of gold slanting low across the ebb and flow igniting the imagination - agleam with peachy dreams - of just-waking waters and catching fire-tipped riffles; rubies gathered ride the tide to the coastline glamorizing the washed still-sleepy seaward sand saturated in the rose-colored nectar of your generous nature ~ Susan Ashley October 13, 2018 *Mare’s tail: a long narrow cirrus cloud whose flowing appearance somewhat resembles a horse’s tail, often indicating high winds in the upper troposphere.*

thanks for "getting" my poem from your last comment. The other perspective people are seeing is not possible because of one line that I had written!

Indeed! I do not think it's possible to interpret your poem any other way than how you intended it to be.. that one line is crystal clear in its expression.. You're welcome, Andrea, your poem was most enchanting..
Date: 10/15/2018 12:48:00 PM
You "ignite our imagination" dear Susan by your rich and meticulous depiction of Nature in its glorious exhibition! A celestial enchantment while reading and rereading! You make "darkness and light" "exchange gifts"! the dawn "ripens", the horizon gets "mature" and the sky "drowsed"! A wealth of breathtaking imagery to learn from and get inspired! You rendered the "generous nature" in a fabulous generosity of poetic heart and a bountiful rainbow of diction! Into my heart and FAV. Love and hugs.

To unite the onlooker's nature with that of dawn is a task few would undertake. Only the brave, only the visionaries, only the Susan Ashleys of the poetry world can conceive of such joyous splendor. Bravo, poet! Best wishes always, Gershon
