The Lonely Time

Rating: 4.6

I cherish early morning,
the lonely time.

To wait and watch the glow,
almost sublime,

rising into the night
until the hour

of sleepy tousled sunrise

and its power.

You make a telling point here. The pre-dawn darkness is always a peaceful time, but the day may bring conflicts and trouble. Solitude is everything. I like the photo a lot.

Exactly! Once the sun is up noise and reality set in but sunrise itself is hope.

As the lonely man cries for his better half. A crock sometimes in this post modern world.

I can relate to this poem. I am a woman of the morning. I love its quiet solitude and the safety of the tousled sunlight. There is something about the word tousled....love it. It s a sensual word one can luxuriate in before becoming a truly awake person. To think of the sun in a tousled state is unique... and fitting. A very uplifting hopeful poem.
