raise the dawn

red sun
with your fingers folded
do you know me

clouds upon your brow
do you remember

seeds in the urgent earth
are you waking

skin of the desert soil
are you breaking

sun
with your eyes upon me
can you touch me

white and searing
as a cymbal crashing
will you spare me

face the dawn
as if the sun
were rising

where will I plant my feet
to raise the dawn

I am a bit concerned. It's not like you to let a month go by without posting a picture and a lovely poem. I am sure everyone misses this special treat they could always count on!

Hi firebird, hoping you are well!

I've had to (temporarily?) close my blog to 'outside' readers - I'll send you an invite if you send me the email address linked to your profile.

Tom--Thanks for the encouragement--I do need to hear that sometimes someone reads this blog--and sometimes it means something to them...

Hayden--don't even think of stopping your blog--that would be a crime indeed! I'll definitely follow you to your new spot--
