The Waking



The scurry
Of dreams
Against the night air

Dawn slides down
Sky’s back
Peaking through
A garden’s gate

Her every breath
A burst of orange
And their feet on flames

  1. Your imagery is powerful and vivid. Your personification works in a lovely flow. So nice. I wonder. Do you write to the feeling of the photograph, or find the photograph to illustrate your poem?

    • Thank you Sara!

      I took this photograph months ago and thought that it fit the poem. I wrote it a few weeks ago on a plane while flying home.

  2. Nice work … both aspects, very nice work!

  3. Alpha Omega looking through the lense and pressing the keys 🙂
