Defending the Dawn

(an aubade)



Let the record show
the awe of quiet. The spread
of not-yet light across a waking
sky. Leaf flutter lashes tumbling
night from their grasp.

Ask the birds your many quest
-ions; have them swear to sing
the truth. Demand the hills
deliver proof that fog will lift
and day will rise.

Hold that crimson climbing sun
like a lozenge on your hungry tongue.

Scoot the moon a pillow cloud
to hold her golden head.

…………………………..The defense rests.



Written for Poetic Asides April PAD Challenge, day 11
