Reluctant Dawn


Languid rays-

like arms,

stretch upward,

as early morning eyes

peek from beneath

its nightcap.

Dawn desires

a few more moments

of sleep

before approaching

the long day

of its profession.

Procrastinating a bit longer,

with obvious reluctance,

it creeps slowly

from horizon's bed,

and into place.

Till finally,

with one long,

sighing yawn,

it bursts forth

upon the land,

awakening the day.

The beauty of a morning dawn could not be more beautifully described as this. Your visionary skils in this poem is outstanding-the picture you paint with your poetric brush is simply breathtaking. Thank you Cathy for sharing your visionary poetic beauty of sunrise with me and have a very beautiful 4th of July weekend.
