Dancing at Sunrise

Updated on January 15, 2013

I wait

on that moment of light.

I perch;

this glimmer sets me in flight.

It comes,

bathing me in warmth and wonder.

I rise;

in response to this welcome thunder.


I bloom

and lean towards this feeling;


aflush, my senses reeling.

I quicken;

for this love I was created.

I bask

in your rays; I am elated.

We dance;

your shine brings me to life.

My heart:

free from the sadness of night.


He comes

and draws the curtains to.

I wilt;

in this grief my petals strew.

I bow

with the weight of this cross.

I wait

though time will not erase this loss.

      Thank you Valleypoet. This piece has another meaning as well, but I am glad the symbolism did not affect the face value of this piece; that was my intention.

      Nicely done...makes me think of Spring, when the sun will rise before I get out of January it doesn't show it's face here until I'm in work...this really cheered my spirits...thanks for sharing:-))

      The way the sun affects the rose, the sunflower, and the human spirit.
