POETRY IS COOL SERIES: The SunrisesteemCreated with Sketch.

in poetry •  last year

This is the first of my original poem recital series. I love writing poetry and I have decided that I will also recite my poetry to you as well, set to background music. Take a listen.

I've always loved watching a sunrise. It is one of the most beautiful sights on earth. And, it also reminds me of new beginnings and hope. Never take a sunrise for granted, as it is synonymous with the beginning of life's journey. Birth is like a sunrise and death is like a sunset, but even sunsets are just as beautiful.

Traveling back from the dimensions of the dream state
My dream body fading, my mind not fully awake
With a flicker of movement I open my eyes
Looking past the curtain through the window to the sunrise
Not yet able to move, I feel the sun on my face
Its rays peaking and dancing through the curtain lace
As the minute in the moment slowly passes by
I hear the birds sing and I see the birds fly
Fully awaking, shaking off the paralysis of sleep
I take a breath of fresh air, breathing ever so deep
A stretch and a yawn, my hand finding the curtain
Pulling it back unapologetically, nothing uncertain
The night may have brought me tears
And even in my dreams, I have fears
But the night soon turns into light
And, in that, I know that I'm all right
Because with some things I know I must cut ties
It's no secret and it is no surprise
That all is well with my lonely cries
When I open my eyes and see the sunrise
