Shimmering Dawn - a poem

The beauty of the Shimmering dawn

Leaning out of the window, gazing at the world,

As I watch the palms trees sway gently,

The breeze brushes me, warmly with his lips,

Parting the midnight curtain that covers the face,

With the warm breath, of his parted lips,

Aglow with pleasure, filled with passionate desire,

Eyes closed in sensual pain,

The feel of sublime pleasure!

I float away on the wings of yearning,

Skyward on the clouds,

With the song birds, oh so free,

The wind, for my company,

The shimmering dawn does tug me on,

Drawing forcefully into the eternity,

Of a wondrous, golden morn.. ..

Liquefied gold, rushing through the russet sky,

Enslaving my tender heart!

Do I ever stand a chance?

Of being free, from his tight embrace,

Of thinking mine own thoughts,

I wander like a dazzled bee,

Kissing every bud and flower,

Tumbling on their bed of gold,

Epicentered in petaled bowls,

My life now seems so complete,

With love I am replete!

I know not what I really want,

Its enough, its enough, says my heart,

Can’t take more of this heavenly flow,

Yet, lusting for more than life can hold,

My eyes lids droop heavy with Lethe,

Head tilted back for more,

To reach deeper into that oblivion,

That fills my inner core!

Oh glorious shimmering dawn!!

      Connie, that was the first poem I published. Thanks for picking it out... I feel that rush and passion of love when the rays of that shimmering dawn touches my being.. it reaches my soul! It is like falling in love all over again. Thank you... those pictures were indeed specially picked out to highlight the words. I am pleased that you found them soothing! May each dawn be a blessed one for you! Shalom!

      Thank you, Logic, commonsense it is so easy to get transported in a moment into that magical, golden and shimmering dawn and be drawn into its magnetic force, that is the compelling beauty of nature. Glad you enjoyed it.

      Thank you once again for the comment and the encouraging words.

      Very nicely written shimmering Dawn, (from the poem of the same name...) Very evocative it was, too. Nice work.

      Welcome to Hubpages. :)
