A Coromandel Dawn - Poem by Bob Gibson

Fifteen miles across the bay
That's where the Coromandel lay
Along its shore, the twinkling light
Of cars and street lamps of the night

Above the Coromandel range
Dawns first light will rearrange
The colors' of the sky and sea
From blood red, orange to Ecstasy

Those wispy clouds just for a spell
Seem to be lit by the fires of hell
The sky has changed from black to blue
The sea has changed in color too

Clouds, stars, a waxing moonI
It seems, its over all to soon
I bathe my eyes in this glorious time
When I'm alone with natures rhyme

Colors fade from the cloak of night
As the sun beams out its eastern light
Tomorrow / today will be reborn?
With the promise of another dawn

    Beautiful poem with true imageries of nature describing the picturesque of dawn on portion of west coast of the Bay of Bengal. The blending of colors between day and night on that particular place is really the peculiar feature of this poem. The simlis of ' Waxing Moon ' and ' Natures Rhyme ' show your love with the natural scenic and your power to describe the sceneries in such cursive words. The last stanza has an essence in it with a strong meaning of continuity of life on this planet with every today with a learning lesson for the tomorrow that will be reborn the next day with a new horizon......10/10
    Best Wishes
