The Dawn

Ecstatic bird songs pound
the hollow vastness of the sky
with metallic clinkings--
beating color up into it
at a far edge,--beating it, beating it
with rising, triumphant ardor,--
stirring it into warmth,
quickening in it a spreading change,--
bursting wildly against it as
dividing the horizon, a heavy sun
lifts himself--is lifted--
bit by bit above the edge
of things,--runs free at last
out into the open--!lumbering
glorified in full release upward--
songs cease.

The Jewelry Tree

Photo credit: Montucky (Terry)

Terry, I changed nothing except to select the 'jewelry' parts 
and apply an Edge Enhance filter and added a pop-out frame.
Thank you so much for letting me play with it! :)

I wrote a quick little ditty to go with it.....

Baubles litter  maple leaves
Shining in the sunset
Tiny flashlights illuminating
the way to enchantment

I couldn't find a poem to go with this image.
Sometimes, having to find a poem to match an image
can be frustrating and very limiting to my creativity. I
may have many posts in the future that are images only.

On of my followers posted a poem for this image:

i saw a reflection in your green eyes
the flowering buds of spring
i felt renewal in your sweet smile
the sustaining warmth of summer

Mother's Day 2011

My Mother

A total self commitment
Not fame nor fortune need
She gave herself completely
In thought, in word, in deed.

She never stopped to wonder
On blessings she might earn
But tried instead to teach me
And prayed that I might learn.

And now I'm older, wiser
I understand much more
And look with admiration
Her presence I adore.

Mother gave me everything
A debt I can't repay
So help me God to show her
My love in every way.
