Along Dawn's Amber Shores

Dawn slowly awakened and pardoned the moon
Empty, the canopy where once stars were strewn
   In repose, Luna slept after wandering velvet skies
   and spider webs shimmered in the flight of sunrise
      Dew drops evaporated upon the fragrant tuberose
      as a playful breeze billowed my sheer nightclothes

Seagulls swooped and scurried along amber shores
A crew of men grappled with the sea on labored oars
   Muscles pulled in rhythmic chorus, as if in lyrical rote
   as surging waves rocked the hull of their fishing boat
      They surpassed each crest and triumphed over swells
      The sun's prisms painted the horizon in muted pastels

Inspired by the milieu of ruffled swirls across the sea
sunlight dappled across its surface in sequenced litany
   I sipped a second cup while thoughts were being seeded
   Poetry spawned within me;  a birthing to be heeded
      For as driftwood hastens down rapids to a new frontier
      I needed to ledger my verses, ere they hie to disappear

    Somehow by the shore sunrises are a little more spectacular.
