The Gems of Morning

. 

“…Dew-drops are the gems of morning…” Sammuel Taylor-Coleridge (from Youth And Age)

 

 

The Gems of Morning

.

There you are, ages old friends,

Round and quivering

Light gleamed and temporary

Telling me of tranquility

And transcendence.

.

I am as young as you are ancient

Pushing my way through the temporal

As if it were a semi-permeable

Membrane. To persevere

Is not the same as remembering.

.

 

Dew drops are marvelous creatures

Faultless and loyal they defend

The right to be whatever diadem

The world decrees. Clams or treasure

In a box, the sea will eventually

Give up her dead to sparkle

Like dew shared on the shores

of time.

Thanks for the read. A limited time posting - I am still not supposed to be posting poetry until 02.21.15. 5 months to go.  So glad you stopped by. I feel as if a great weight has been lifted. - Just Bein' Lady A
