Early Light Through Trees

Spoke filled rays auriferous spun through
filigree o' verdant canopy
Hold my promise
Shed my fears
Awaken all my days to years
Bury me in sun loved mulch
Neath leaf litter lightly fallen
Drag my spirit through luminous clouds
By birded wings far calling
Kiss me in my forest bed
As dew moist lips
Touch falling
And let me know
That you will glow
Upon spilled years
Now sprawling
Until days disperse
In annual fruits
Sweet but sparsely forming
Roll on, roll by, oh golden life,
marry me in your dawn
Whisper love on each days breath
And each day be reborn.

    well crafted versus, that definitely tickle my envy for your semantic enchantment. I love a good nature poem especially one that is bucolic like this. Stellar stuff

    Whisper love on each days breath
    And each day be reborn.

    i've read it. i thank you for sharing. i've read the comments, all aglow. but, unfortunately it doesn't click with me.

    however i did like the sound of:

    Touch falling
    And let me know
    That you will glow
    Upon spilled years
    Now sprawling: ...........i'm a sucker for sweet rhymes. bri :)

    The soft sun rays filtering through the canopy of leaves, early in the morning forming a filigree is beautifully captured in arresting verse! Enjoyed the poem much! !

    This poem took my breathe away, imagining the tree and early light loving each other! If I who watched the sunrise only a few times being inlove with the light coming from behind the trees, how could those who see it everyday not be inlove with the first light of our sun? Your poem, memory to keep for a life time.

    Something about the way you craft the illumination of nature's delicate beauty stirs my soul. Such sweet surrender in the sunrise. Absolutely magnificent. PEACE

    So difficult to capture moods like this and put them on paper but you've achieved this perfectly.
    I'm sure the poem is more beautiful than the photo.
