Lost Sunrise ~ #writephoto

Lost Sunrise

This is not how we would have it
This expectant pause before a new sunrise

The silence is ours alone, as in that of absence,
One long lost, victim of our presence

If we were here to witness we would hear
The wakening of a hope that is not ours to share

As the sun would slowly melt a morning mist
So, too, would time erase our mark

Easing the scars we’ve inflicted
Traces of our past a mystery

Leaving others to imagine
Our dream of a new sunrise

This is my response to Thursday Photo Prompt: Dance #writephoto
at Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo, with her photo.

  1. Explicitly real … especially these lines:
    “As the sun would slowly melt a morning mist
    So, too, would time erase our mark
    Easing the scars we’ve inflicted”

    For the planet’s sake, I embrace this vision.
    For my personal sake, I hope to someday (in some other form) look down, nodding, acknowledging my part back-when in the scarring, my departure among many a part of the restoration.

    For right now, I strive to stay open to new and better ways to live on this planet.

  2. Hi. Thanks for sharing such a beautifully penned poem. Stunning imagery I love the lines; ‘This expectant pause before a new sunrise’; ‘The silence is ours alone’ and ‘sun would slowly melt a morning mist’. I have shared. Have a great day.
