Break of Dawn

Break of Dawn

Dawn has broken.
Emblaze a gilded token.
Despite colors it bleeds.
A work of art concedes.

Storm clouds congregate.
Dour grays, somber state.
Pigments caress and console.
Brush-stroked beauty stole.

Canvas portrays a sun.
Afore genesis since begun.
Spectral vapors wane.
Mona Lisa shan't complain.

Florid moon arise.
Stardust allotted guise.
Shadows take a stand.
Engulf vast expand.

Intone nocturne scry.
Fireflies brailed sky.
Maestro inspired liaison.
Render break of dawn.

Ms. Leeza,Β 
That's just beautiful, my friend.Β 
When I looked at the picture, I was like 'wow!', then I read your words, and I wow-ed again(so, it was a double wow-ed effort).Β 

Great job, Lis!Β 

You're a fine writer, and person.Β

You are welcome, lung yady! I mean young lady.Β 
You never write me anymore...you don't bring me flowers...you don't sing me love songs...I'm no longer the Barbra Streisand to your Neil Diamond...or vice versa. Kidding, but write me sometime, if you dare! LOL.Β 
Miss you,Β

Actually, I AM typing with my nose right now! (I had my fingers in a jar of marmalade when someone closed it, quite quickly and violently, and shattered all of my fingers at the knuckle). I'm OK, but my nose hurts...so you have to write me.Β 

Over.Β

Yes, but both of my arms were recently attacked by alligators in Brussels, France, and are held on by Gorilla tape.Β

Hey, I used to have that dry eye syndrome, too, but I had surgery, and had two miniature fire hydrants inserted in my eyeballs, and every third week or so, some firefighter guys go in and turn them on, and I haven't been plagued by it since.Β 
Have you tried that?Β

Very pretty imagery!Β  I learn from you the mastery of words in a very controlled tight rhyme....I sensed the storm approaching to steal daybreak's thunder...beautiful imagery. Thank you for sharing your talents. xoΒ
