Fay Slimm.






From the first finger of hazy light
fresh rays from
day's entrance shatter dark chains



Breeze stirs black dregs to a finish
as streaks of
morning beget break of new dawn



Unsullied azure displays an astute
need for space 
by removing glimpsed bits of grey



Sleep flits away, giving me chance
for early  
attempt to describe nature's  gifts



Caught in night's grasp is no place
to stay when
day's enticing draws poets to write

    You have a true gift of poeticizing the morning sunshine at dawn absolutely charming and uplifting, and as I've been to Cornwall I can relate to the beauty that we also have in our little corners of treasure throughout UK. Thank you.

    • Fay Slimm.

      And you are so kind in reviewing so generously my little writes - many thanks Teddy.

        A fine write Fay.
        I have to settle for a morning mist clearing over the local duck pond! Well, that's good sight too. lol.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Ducks are beautiful and to watch them in water is just like a ballet - a good sight certainly Orchi.

            Thank you sincerely dear Andy for your in-put to the glories of dawn for poetic expressions are ever made better when watching the sun rise or set.

          • Saxon Crow

            Lovely poem Fay. Daybreak, like twilight, is always a moment of magic

            • Fay Slimm.

              Magic is quite the right ward S.C. - to take even a small part in observing the changes when sun rises or sets is as you say -- just Magic - - - glad you enjoyed the read.

            • dusk arising

              I can picture you in my twisted mind's eye sat in the shroud of night facing east clutching pen and notepad, a slight shiver running through you as you beckon the dawn with "come on you ba___rd, Impress me"

              No, not really but you don't get many comments like this to the pound do you?

              • Fay Slimm.

                Ha ha -- You certainly let your fancy feel free when my wordy dawn-message catches your deeper attention - -- maybe I do sit and clutch pen and paper but not as early as sunrise in summer my imaginative friend. Your comments are always most welcome .

                        'to describe nature's gifts
                        and ain't that
                        just the perfect summation
                        of your Poetic legacy!
                        I have lost count
                        of how many daybreak poems
                        you've shared with us, Dear Fay
                        but I know for certain
                        after reading each one
                        I'm left hoping that your next
                        won't be too long: in the inking..
                        thank you, what a wondrous depiction
