Sunrise - Poem by André Lopes

Crystalized and ethereal dawn
with the moon's face suspended in the air.
bodies dancing near a beach
searching for the ecstasy of the stars.
all of my friends are gathered in this place,
surrendered to the magic rhythms of nature.
we wait for nothing more than a state of grace,
a glimpse of eternity.

Sounds and revelations are blooming everywere,
reaching its way to far away galaxies.
and soon the sun will come with its yellow burning arms,
to wash away the dirt from our souls.
i can already feel it coming our way,
and then we will all laugh and sing
lost in the vanity of our senses,
and joyfull in our heavenly madness.

    This is your best yet. A fascinating celebration of the ritual of dawn. You use words with flourish like a a renaissance painter - In particular 'its yellow burning arms' and 'lost in the vanity of our senses' stood out. Superb poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply
