Point Of View - Poem by Barry Middleton

the morning was so long ago
it has grown old before its time
it creeps along like old men do

the new born sun reached out for day
so restless for its hopeful climb
to claim a victory at noon

but then its tears began to fall
for it could see its resting place
the far horizon of the sea

and as I watch it disappear
a world away someone awakes
to greet another infant day

perhaps the coming night reveals
the secret of infinity
as morning breaks across the sea

Topic(s) of this poem: cycle , life and death

    perhaps the coming night reveals
    the secret of infinity
    as morning breaks across the sea I liked this here the most...

    A wonderful metaphoric write. You do it so well, play with nature imagery to say the most profound things. A huge 10. (Report)Reply

    Thanks. That's a topic that preoccupies me at this time. The end for one man is the beginning for another.
