It's Dawn, So You Know...
Dawn tip-toed in quietly,
as if not to disturb the Night,
which while dreaming sweetly,
was unwilling to greet the light.

Whispering of a new age,
days filled with prismatic hue,
the shadows surrendered
all their shades of grayish-blue.

Lavender spreads its silken wings
preparing to take flight.
Morning came-a-waltzing, wearing
shoes that seemed too tight.

If only for a moment, magic
held the memories at bay.
I sat in quiet reflection;
there was nothing else to say.

I don't know if you have condisered wallpaper with all these ribbons yet or not, but, you're gonna HAVE to think of something to do with them! lol..Honestly, this write has to be one of my all time favs from any writer, anywhere, anytime.  I mean just settles into me, and I "feel" it, ..mourn it, could read it over and over again. Seriously. You know when something just grabs you up, and this one does me. I can be jealous all day long over this, because I can't get my brain to work this way; but in the end, all I really am, is happy that someone put it to words. I curtsey to the queen in love, admiration, and thankfulness for all she is..

I see I'm the next in a long line of admirers of this work. I enjoyed the personification of the different parts of the day, giving each its own character. I liked the line "Morning came a-waltzing, wearing/shoes that seemed too tight". And the last line is a wonderful finale.

A pleasure to read, beautifully written...

A quiet and thoughtful rendering of the dawn….  Lovely

This is so beautiful Jody, it shows how cyclic everything in our lives is. Each day is another go round, but is unlike the day before.   Henry
Comment By: FreeChuck on January 8, 2007 04:03:58 PM Report

This is very good…from silence in the begining to the silence in the end… reminds me of the morning kills so many things…the dreams looming in tired eyes of those of yet to awake… and the lives of those of us who rise into the vague monotony of a new day…we end where we begin to begin where we’ve ended… a beautiful tragedy... and well written too.  

Comment By: PremiumDavid Turner on January 8, 2007 04:02:52 AM Report
This is a Joliad is it not? And beautifully executed too. Also, perhaps, the thoughts of Eos before embarking upon her long love affair with Tithonus, poor man; but Goddesses are Godesses and do what they will do - we mere mortals must simply follow in their footstepsand accept our fate!-)


Warm Wishes

Morning came in stompin'

as though to kick my butt

How the hell did it get in?

I left the drapes all shut......


Nahh, I think I'll leave the metaphors to you, Evil, mine just isn't coming out as good as yours! This one's a winner, J, it almost starts out drowsy then starts waking up more with each!

You write so beauifully my friend...:o)

This is truly a wonder of exquisitely woven metaphor~
I've never seen such mastery with metaphor...

A lovely piece of work, J.  Well done.  ML
Comment By: FreeRandy Harrison on August 1, 2006 06:15:16 AM Report
How very clever. Minnesota Lavender is rather flighty and likes to waltz with the morning when it is wearing shoes that are too tight. Ah, and yes that magical moment of "clarity" when everything is understood and words are unneeded. Great one Jolen...

Much love,

Fabulous J enjoyed very much


Love Angelxx

Great use of personification, Jody.  LOVED this!



Comment By: FreeJames Thomas Whitworth on July 27, 2006 04:58:47 AM Report

I love the first two and last two lines. Also, "morning came waltzing in wearing / shoes that seem to tight". I don't know where you got that from, but it's inspired. It is very much John Prine territory. The last two are where it shines though. You capture the whole point of dawn - a time for thinking about the day before, while preparing for the one to come. Most people just think "Oh yeah, dawn's a pretty time of day", which misses the point of it's serenity. The more I read it, there are no redundant lines; they all say something that adds to the piece. You did good, sweetness :)

In the uncertain hour before the morning
     Near the ending of interminable night
     At the recurrent end of the unending
After the dark dove with the flickering tongue
     Had passed below the horizon of his homing
     While the dead leaves still rattled on like tin
Over the asphalt where no other sound was
     Between three districts whence the smoke arose
     I met one walking, loitering and hurried
As if blown towards me like the metal leaves
     Before the urban dawn wind unresisting.
     And as I fixed upon the down-turned face
That pointed scrutiny with which we challenge
     The first-met stranger in the waning dusk
     I caught the sudden look of some dead master.

                                    Little Gidding

A sophisticated sunrise. Beautiful Jolen. Your metaphors bring out my jealous side. jp
