The Many Faces of Day

The Many Faces of Day 




The sombre morning
hums a maudlin song, as burdened clouds
hang low, having swallowed up the dawn,
and expectant eyes keep looking for a break,
a crack through which that eternal blue can breath.

My heart is heavy, the day so bland,
of all I seek in light and hope,
yet storms and snarling countenance
is but a momentary bleak affront,
to nature’s rise and fall in every mood she takes.

And then that crack appears,
and light does in luminosity prevail,
shards like ethereal spotlights bless the earth,
and clouds as if dismissed,
pull themselves apart, regret their dark disdain.

And hearts warm to the hope in sight,
the broken clouds remiss, take flight,
and the victorious sun begins to sing,
joined by feather and all living things,
to welcome the wanted day.

No matter what she sends to earthly plight,
nature’s gifts forever ours to hold,
with every mood and colour she does paint upon the day,
tis we who find the beauty, the glory she portrays,
in this our journey of light.

    What an amazing delight, you most definitely bring light forth with your magnificent palette Tony. Light is the protector of mankind, the sun and moon together create an even flow of night and day radiance. How the moon affects the tides and waters within our very being, it shifts our moods and countenances and some of us lose control. Without the light there would be no life, the darkness would swallow us whole, our souls would be forever tarnished. I say give me the light and light up my soul.

    Light is literally and metaphorically our savior and what nourishes life. Pleased you enjoyed this one, I often have to paint these picture’s because we all need to be reminded of what life really is in experience. Cheers!
