Fay Slimm.





As division trembles on time's very edge we
sit on bent grass and wind-dried heather
tracing the breaking of dawn.

Like eyes each disc of light assails in-coming
shoreline to scatter blackness as tide
sighting morning gilds its form.

Pulsating with power day bursts forth with
oceans of jewelled diamanté-darts
coating each breaker in glitter.

What awesome intake this token cliff-top
display of unbroken performance as
sunbeams complete dawn's finish.

        ... There ain’t nothin can compare with the Kernow coastline ... certainly not when shared with a lover pre, post or peri dawn ....

        ...Penned to perfection Fay ... 😎

            Now if I'm not mistaken that picture is taken from Lands End looking westwards where you'd be treated to a lovely sunset but.......

            Your words bring to mind what magic there must be in witnessing the dawn over a seascape and being able to see its effect upon adjacent coast. I shall have to plot a course for a place where i could watch this display one fine day.

            • Fay Slimm.

              Yes dawn over a seascape cannot be missed dear friend - - the magic of first light-rays on water is worth rising early for and I shall save you a virtual place to watch the change - - thanks for your visit and comment on Intake D.A. - - - always much appreciated.

              the loving way you write of Dawn so often makes me think you must have been Tithonus in a past life...
              wonderful imagery
