Vijay Sai

(30 12 1975 / Trichy, South India)

The Dawn


As the wide cover of unevaluating darkness
studded with sparkling spots
which glitter and glimmer in unproportionate delays
begin to fold itself in gentle pace
the sweetly singing chirping birds
with brisk clapping feathers
wander and ponder to all parts in search of survival
to last another gruelling day of tedious struggles
the grimly faced white shadowy angel
shies herself away from the
bright, shiny, sunny appearance
of her much powerful spouse
reminding us to peel off the perils of the past
and face the fragrant fantasies of future

    This is fantastic. The dawn is not just the end of a night it is the start of of a new day and that should be the attitude and spirit. You do well in your poems.
    Wonderful Write.

    This poem has much meaning beyond its simple title. It bring elements of darker things and other connections to our world and holds many metaphors. I much prefer this type of poem - thank you for the wonderful journey you've presented to me, your reader. Please read some of mine too. (People seem to especially like my Cloud poem, though it is one of my first and simplest. Please feel free to peruse my other works as well.) (Report) Reply

    Wow, beautiful poem! It's astounding because I also just recently completed a poem with the same principles, it's called Break of Dawn. May I be honoured to invite you to read it, I'm sure you'll find it exceptionally interesting! (Report) Reply

    Sir, u write a different genre of poetry...........words used are beautifully beaded together..........brilliant flow of thoughts...........

    though..........u can take ur writing to a new level..........
    just need to keep a few things in focus while presenting it for reading purposes.....

    But then again..........brilliant writing :) (Report) Reply

    Dawn, perhaps the most magical moment of the day
    very nice poetical description, very human, a lot of feeling.
    and in the end postive expectations dominate with fragrant fantasies, a fantastic choice of words.
    Thanks for sharing, Tomorrow morning I will think about the fragrant fantasies and perhaps it will make may day a bit more fragrant. (Report) Reply

    Can't say i exactly understand the content of this poem but I can certainly recognise the last two
    lines as being a high grade of poetry. (Report) Reply

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
