2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 23

Somehow, we’ve only got a week left of poeming. So let it begin.

For today’s prompt, write a morning poem. The poem can be about the morning, take place during the morning, or however you want to work the morning in.

Here’s my attempt:

“I Never Hear the Alarm”

Always a hand on my shoulder
and a whisper, my dreams dissolve
as I search for the voice calling
me into the world, a voice
softer than feathers moved by breath
released from a sleeping baby,
so I might find it on her lips
and bury it with my kisses.

    Morning Thermal

    Wing flash
    Blue to blue
    Sky
    Feather
    Merge to
    Dance in
    Still air from
    Cliff to sky
    Feathers dance in
    Rising air
    Morning flight
    To fly
    Soar away
    To cast
    To blue sea
    wing

    Prayer for my Final Morning

    Morning comes once more
    like so many before it but
    I cannot count how many
    since my first dawn, the one
    I cannot recall nor are any
    left alive who do remember
    that morning of my birth.

    And when my last morning
    arrives, will I recognize it as
    my final one or squander it
    the way I’ve wasted others
    down the years? Lord I pray
    the sun, igniting firmament,
    ignites my spirit on that day.

    To-Morrow’s Yesterday

    I will regret you then, when I wake early.
    Before dawn creeps in and her ray’s pierce
    my eyes, shut tight against her violation.
    I will regret you then, when I read and reread
    the words which seduced me into your arms,
    into your bed. I will regret you then.
    Each moment before I wake, cherished,
    because I’ll have no memory of you then.
