The First Lights of the Day

------------------------

(by Seabell)


The first lights of the day

When I first think of you

With passion, certitude and fear…

Strong tea and decadent cake

Vivid materializations of my

Stubborn rages and meek essence…

The liquid quality of the words

Surfacing the density of the night

The stretches of river yet to walk

The predictable and the unknown

The aim, the boat and its fragility

Amazing colors, shapes and names

Paths to discover, stories to thrill…

Simple pieces of a simple mechanism:

Life intensely lived, words, you and me

(These are a few of my favorite things.)

For some reason I never find the topic on time. I just wrote my poem this morning when I got up and it had been raining and it was cloudy again. So here it is. I so love reading all the fine poems. Get one up today.

Great poem Seabell. I keep singing the song "My Favorite Things" to myself today (raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...) Anyway, this poem is about my daughter's favorite things and favorite place.

Seabell, fantastic write! I am going to apologize beforehand just in case I am cut off from the cyberworld again. For the past week we've been doing the warm up and flood then cool down and have a snow storm thing so the internet connection has been on and off. I will get to some fine reading as long as the connection stays up!

I posted three poems for this weeks Potluck: one of them is on the theme of this week. The other two are about Finnish mythology. Soul-bird(guardian of souls) and Ajattara(evil forest spirit, among other things:D)

Seabell's poem is beautiful and the choice of words romantic!

Also, ditto what Thingy said. :)
