A Rather Spectacular Sunrise - Poem by Zen Bojczuk

I've seen many a spectacular sunrise
Fishing in cold mountain night
Waiting for something to bite
Just me… a doe and fawn
Waiting for the warm dawn

I've seen many a spectacular sunrise
Before light...walking on the beach
Puzzling over a dream I couldn't reach
Light ~ as if a promise of better tomorrow
Dawn ~ to wash away my frivolous sorrow

I've seen many a spectacular sunrise
Sun rays still below the horizon ….rising
Air warmed by faint light seems surprising
Then bright yellow ..a touch of blazing red
Rays that intrude into my eyes and bed

I've seen many a spectacular sunrise
Wondering of my dream as I did arise
Dreamed of sunrise reflected in her eyes
Morning light..as nature lifts her disguise
Assumed cookie cutter day of little surprise

That morning she saw a spectacular sunrise
Particularly cold night had flown slowly by
To move beyond the daze she had to try
Sunrise was quite spectacular that day
After the night her mother passed away

    A new, spectacular sunrise for her mother, Zen. You've depicted sunrises at different times and places SO well...this poem lives in reality. How many people have felt a sunrise like you? I hope there are many. It's Nature's opening scenes of the daily play...soundless. Spectacular, from start to finish! xxElysabeth (Report) Reply

    I've seen many a spectacular poem, swetheart... but this beats most of them hands down. Incredibly descriptive and atmospheric; the verse flows with the thoughts... and yes; bittersweet twist is the icing on the cake. Wonderful. t x (Report) Reply

    Zen, this beautiful poem about the sunrise is absolutely beautiful....Your vivid descriptions bring the 'event' to life in each instant, or stanza... Though a sad and for me, an unexpected ending, it remains awesome! ~~~~~~~~marci.xo (Report) Reply
