MORNING'S MOLTON GLORY

Updated on March 19, 2013

LIV.


Morning is a friend

And night,

~ a parent.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay





Were it not

For memory,

Morning's glory

Would be less dear,

The whiff of ecstasy

It brings,

Its wistful story

Of those other springs,

Like drops of molten gold

And angel's wings

I view from here ~

Would be less real;

But are kept near

In poignant memory.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay


It radiates

From deep within,

Brand-new ~

Alive,

Infectious joy.


I never had to tell you.

You always simply 

Knew.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay


Textured ~

         The day,

                The season's shades

          Play upon

   The screen

Of life

   And weave

             Its fabric

                    To be seen

          By mortal eyes

Attuned to see.


       ______© Nellieanna H. Hay


When someone

Steals your heart

Outright

Then hands it back to you,

The daylight turns into the night;

There's nothing left to do

But to try again to feel.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay















When I think of you -

And I do -

It's in colors of the rainbow,

Arched and pulsating

In a kind of rhythmic

Symphony of hue,

Raising us to realms

Above the commonplace.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay




Forgive my intrusion

On your heart.

I fear I'm caught!

I mean only

To linger briefly

For respite

From onslaught

Of a different sort.

I'll not stay,

Uninvited.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay

      The morning here is rather drizzly and grey today. But, after reading your poems, I can now see a burst of sunlight.

      Thank you Nellieanna.

      Lovely video and pictures too.

      Molten Glory is such a fine title for this Glorious array of pure gold. Fragrance is such a fine memorial to the love of your life - the masseuse of your mind and heart. Love the video tributes to wondrous nature and enjoyed the familiar accompaniment but can't identify it - can you?

      Your rainbow is my favorite and the most visually vivid for me. Thank you most sincerely for centering me with my morning friend. You - as your words - resonate and reflect beauty.

      Christopheranton, dear friend, thank you. How pleased I am to be able to brighten your drizzly morning.

      It’s now in the wee hours of the next morning since I finally got the hub together, but yesterday morning I slept through a big thunderstorm to awaken to a nicely washed earth. We’ve had so little rain, it was truly a welcome one, and then came the the freshly washed sunshine for the rest of yesterday, though it turned a bit nippier than it had been. Probably our last little flirtation with cooler weather. Nice! I do love the antics of weather (so long as they don't hang around interminably!) ;->

      Thank you, Gerry! I’m glad you like it! I love that word, molton. It’s one of those words which seems almost visceral and thrilling.

      Ah, you've pinpointed the essence of Fragrance and the visuals of my Rainbow. Thank you; - as well as for the lovely compliments!

      The video at the last is Edvard Grieg’s “Morning Mood” from Peer Gynt. Lovely melody, isn’t it? There are many beautiful video renditions of it, but that one with the wildlife responding to mornings’ awakening grabbed my heart. I’m pleased you like it too.

      How poignant, how gentle, how lovely. Every one a beautiful love poem... Nellie, my friend you are just so lovely, just like your poetry.

      This, from one of my favourite writers... I think you have read him, but this must remain our secret:

      "He was as young as the morning; as strong and as forthright as the midday; as gentle and beautiful as the evening; as wise as the night".

      Outright

      Then hands it back to you,

      The daylight turns into the night;

      There's nothing left to do

      But to try again to feel"

      I know unrequited love all to well, and you have to learn to love again, and eventually you do,

      lovely poems as always, though i disagree with the first one, morning is not my friend lol i hate getting up early.

      Nellieanna, as always your poems are as delicate as crystal. Something must be in the air, because I've published a week ago a poem 'Dawn of Love', comparing sunrise with the birth of a new love. I think you'll smile because I've chosen this one as my favorite, although every single one is a little gem.

      When someone

      Steals your heart

      Outright

      Then hands it back to you,

      The daylight turns into the night;

      There's nothing left to do

      But to try again to feel.

      Nellieanna Hay 6 years ago from TEXAS

      Nikki - yes, it’s a new beginning when it has happened to oneself and passed into the past, but needs to be with emphasis on “beginning”, starting from a positive view, so that, as you say - - you can & DO learn to love again, outside the shadows of an unrequited love or one that is no more for any reason. That’s the essence.

      Hehe - sorry about the morning thing. For you who feel vice-versa, reverse it to “Night is a friend and morning, a parent”. OK?

      I love both but for the different reasons. Even as a kid, much as I loved to sleep, I hated to waste valuable time on it! hehe. Thank you for the great feedback.

      DRBJ - I confess that my current profile picture was made at the tender young age of 75, I think it was. Maybe 74. ;-> I chose it now because it expresses my joy at spring breaking out all around me. It was easily accessible and accomplishes that.

      I was entertaining company and then away visiting another relative with them for a week, dear Martie.I got far behind in my follow-up with my favorite hubbers, and since returning, I've been deeply involved with things, too. So I didn’t get a chance to read your “Dawn of Love”. Now I must go read it soon! I’m sure it is a gem, especially in the light of your David’s love. I need to read it before the 6th, because I doubt if you'll be reading a lot of comments after that for quite a few weeks! :-)

      You're probably involved now with preparations for the visit, in fact!! I know how that is!

      I am extremely glad to bring delight in your life, and I trust that love with David will heal any hurtful residue! Hugs and many thanks for your lovely comments.

      Nellieanna Hay 6 years ago from TEXAS

      Thanks, Jaye! I'm pleased that you like the hub! As for the photo, it's not "new". I was a youngster of 74 or 75 at the time. I like to think that the major progression since then, now 79, is in letting my silver hair just "be". I began graying in my 30s so there were some years of other colors from natural through blondes. (I got all my old age shocks over while still young!) But 4 or 5 years ago when that pic was snapped, I was still doing the blonde Loving Care. But I decided that it would be fun to be silver or platinum as nature would have me - and- wow - now I can wear white metals and colors I hadn't been good in before. So it's a whole new world, as keeps happening if one lives long enough. And I keep doing it!

      Oh my. I thought you did well at the poetry thing. Thank you for working on mine! One advantage of my stuff is that it is always brief. It packs a lot into a few words, but at least, it doesn't require you to read a lot of them.

      I got a big laugh out of the "Roses Are Red" comments. Our friend Ian was duly shocked. haha.

      Fun!

      Nellieanna you never fail to introduce sunlight to my day. Your brilliance is beyond this galaxy, your words and descriptions come from deep within your heart and soul. I feel your pulse with each scribe.

      The love you shared with George had to have been heaven sent. He is watching over you that I'm certain and awaiting to have both your hearts shine together in eternity.

      You are simply brilliant Nellieanna, without you here in the Hubs would be the saddest moment for me. Please keep writing and blessing us with your grace. You are a shining, sparkling gem that shines into our hearts. Big hugs from me to you, my sweetest lady.

      As always, Ken, you make my small contribution seem more valuable. Thank you. You are a treasured friend, for sure. If I can do even a fraction as well as you give me credit for doing, I'll be gratified! I will continue to write, though a little slower at present, while I'm - ugh - into taxes. A necessary evil, I suppose. :-)

      Yes, George and I did share a very special love and mutual understanding. Not perfect, but just short of it enough to be human and honest. We didn't see eye to eye on everything, but our differences were in harmony. I suppose that Kahlil Gibran's lovely works on human relationships in"The Prophet" fit us very well, especially those on Love and on Marriage. Are you familiar with it? I did several webpages in my website on his work, including those two, plus on Giving and on Self-Knowledge. If you are interested, the first one is at http://nellieanna.com/onlove.html and it links to the next, and each links to the next after it.

      Actually the next page after "On Self-Knowledge" features a wonderful poem called "Vagabond's House" by Don Blanding, which another Canadian online friend led me to. It is very much a man's poem. You'd appreciate it, I feel sure. To illustrate what a small world it is, George had listened to Don Blanding's radio program in Miami years ago when he worked there.

      Thank you for the glowing appreciation of my writing! My age is just a number, Raghav. I don’t make superfluous connections with it, though I fully acknowledge and appreciate that it has allowed me more time to live. I guess it really is a matter of attitude. Or maybe it is living in the moments one is alive. It’s my mantra, I guess. I’ve never been bored, so no sense in starting now! I’ll probably live into my hundreds, but the main thing is - I will LIVE if all!

      To be seen by mortal eyes! We are blessed indeed when we stop to see. As always, read a number of times. Like sipping instead of drinking. Some times words need to linger like fragrance from the garden or you could just hurry by and miss what was intended for the soul. Another wonderful read, but, that's what I expected. :)

    • Nellieanna profile image
      Author

      Nellieanna Hay 6 years ago from TEXAS

      Ah, my dear Alan, thank you for the visit and the cherishable words! My expectations are smiling! :-)

      I prefer sipping and relishing such things, as well. Side-effects are that it's all one prefers to do and it takes much more of one's time and attention, so that other 'important priorities' are given less. But that has an advantage. Then those other things can be squeezed and gulped more quickly (and possibly more efficiently) when they are apportioned their slots of time, so they are sooner dispensed with.

      Many folks do the reverse, giving the vital nourishment for the soul the shorter shrift while allotting much of their quality time to the more mundane and tiresome details of living. It's a trade-off one way or the other and all a matter of one's value system. :-)

      Thanks again. So very good to see you, Alan! Hope all is well with you, too.

      Nellieanna Hay 6 years ago from TEXAS

      Thank you, Raghav, kind sir! I'm delighted that you perceive that about me! I don't know just how unusual it is, but if it is, I wish it weren't. Life is too precious to not live it zestfully and there are folks who seem able to do so in spite of physical infirmities and limits. But to be able to also stand on one's own two legs and feel health within both body and soul is a wonderful thing. It often is the result of other choices, so if one thinks about these matters early-on, they may be more likely to materialize later-on. I'm always aware of these matters and daily choices, though I'm by no means a poster girl for 99.99% healthy choices always and ever. But I do give them ample consideration.

      Keeping the mind healthy is as important or more so, as well. My theory is that it has a lot to do with really being IN the present time, which is the only time over which anyone has any real impetus. All those adages about the past being but a memory and the future but a dream are actually true. But even spending too much of the present pondering that wastes some of the precious present.

      My faith is real and is totally expressed in these 4 original words, which came from my heart and soul and, as far as I know, exist nowhere else as an expression of faith: "There is no problem".

      Of course - that has to do with God, not mankind, who are always making problems for ourselves. But ultimately - as far as God is concerned - he either IS or isn't and to actually have faith, one needs to - have faith, rather than a bunch of speculation about it. I know only that what IS - is. There is no problem about it. What more can be said or need be said?

      The task I CAN embrace - and must - is myself and my life and what kind of influence it has, if any. To BE real is a step toward that "IS-ness" which may be a god of our thinking or, more likely, of god's own thinking. One of my early poems is "Being Is A Noun And Verb". There is much to ponder in that.

      It's on my hub, Merriment @ https://hubpages.com/literature/Merriment - if you'd like to check it out. It's sort of a fun hub, too.

      Anyway - that's my Sunday sermon for the week. hehe ;->

      Hello, Scarlett! - I wonder if you’re getting or have gotten the storm that came through here last night ahead of a ‘cold front’. It was quick, blew like crazy, dropped some rain & hail, made lightning & thunder and moved on. Today is bright & sunny, though cool and very windy. The weather map as it was tracking it in our vicinity, showed it moving north and east from here. May have missed you. They mentioned eastern Kansas, though so I wondered if it might also hit you. 'Sposed to be lovely tomorrow & I'm scheduled for an all-day tour of the Bluebonnet Trail. So I'm looking forward to that.

      Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I’m immersed in taxes but will have a hub ready to post soon. I’d rather be writing than TurboTaxing. haha. I have my own and George’s estate’s to complete and submit, though. Makes me think the IRS should be paying me for all that stuff! ;-> haha.

      Your poems still sound all my alarms like a 5 alarm fire.All good when I hear your words express themself so naturally and with wonderful grace.The weather is pouring rain here and troublesome across the country.I am listening to the pounding rain and appreciating the sound of the fury.The wonderful strength and the magnificient energy that hums through my room like it is the only thing that exsists right now.I appreciate my safety and all my comforts of home now more than ever.I wonder what it would of been like to be an indian out in the wide open fields against such weather.i enjoyed your poem and thinking of wonderful times that will follow.Always nice to see your smiling face and I wanted to say I have been busy with writing and trying to improve every chance I get.Good things take time and developing talent can take a lifetime.I am still learning so many interesting things from past conversations that we have had.I always appreciate other peoples hard work and sometimes you have to put the breaks on everything we are doing personally and let them know how you feel.I am so fascinated by many little things in life and the big things manage to take care of themselves.God bless and sending sweet thoughts and highlighting the most wonderful memories one can have.Talk soon love your works!At my end all your going to get is the water works.

Your love of life and appreciation for all the good things are like beacons which light even your own occasional dismay with some of the less delightful variety of experiences and challenges which come along with it so that we can tell the difference and even better appreciate the wondrous things we do have to enjoy!

      You're such a good human being!!

      Thank you for visiting and leaving a heartwarming message to help me get into my day of tax work (ugh - speaking of less delightful variety of experience and challenge!).

      The weather was horrid here for a bit - first high winds and then dramatic storms & rain - then more high winds with extremely dry air which has caused many major fires in North Texas. Then the storms and winds moved on east and north and we have lovely cool, dry, sunny clear weather now. I have my windows all open and it is just idyllic. Too bad I must work on taxes all today and tomorrow to finish them up. The IRS allowed till tomorrow instead of Friday this year. I have my own return to do, plus George's estate's, of which I'm the administrator. it's not ready to be closed as an estate, because it's rather complicated & I have much more work to do on it, along with my own stuff. "If it is to be, it is up to me" is my mantra now.

      But I'd thought I'd either be done Friday or would have asked for extensions, so I scheduled an all-day trip yesterday with my friend, Val - to tour in and around Ennis for the official Texas Bluebonnet Trail celebration. I was lovely and we had a yummy lunch at the Wildflower Cafe and Decorating Studio. What a charming place and the food was delicious, too.

      But it took up one of the extra days for taxes. Oh, well - I'm all refreshed and ready to get to work. Just munching my morning fruit and sipping some coffee while giving myself time-off to check online here - and so glad I did!

      Thank you again for the delightful comments and uplifting spirit you share!

      I am deeply impressed by your poem! You are a gifted person for sure. The very first line has hooked me...."Morning is a friend and night,a parent".

      Hello Nellieanna. I am so happy to find you here on HubPages! I agree with Genna. The simply beauty of those first words is stunning. I cannot choose favorites other than that first one. All are gorgeous.
