Entrance of Dawn #poetry #photography

Lover’s play as the sun anticipates awakening the dawn…

Black Velvet Impressionistic

Midnight’s shadow

lingers on her fingertips

Like the gentle caress of black velvet

lips brush a kiss upon night’s curtain


She readies her dress

a whisper “not ready though”

Dawn’s rays beckon in a soft halo

slowly day warms her palm


I must delay  the eyelids of the sun

“Wait just a bit longer” she implores

My surprise for you

will otherwise be ruined


Humored he complies

With a radiant smile

Imagining her allure all the while

silhouetted in the satiny pink of dawn

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
