In the Brilliance of the Dawn

20170929_151331 (1)

As ice releases its grip on the trees, bands of gold slice

through the forest, quicker than knives thrown,

it is a wonder how hawks can see

in the brilliance of the dawn,

and how the first flowers

can be so brave.

  1. Such beautiful words strung together like precious gems on a silk thread.
    The hawk and its sight, the first flowers and their bravery…. exquisite juxtaposition of imagery.
