Ode to dawn

Processed with VSCOcam with k2 preset

Serendipity in a fancy dress,
anxious for spring
and her warmer shadows,
the melody of a sunrise
like the dawn chorus
tripping over piano keys,
shuffling tree limbs
massaging the night,
the flavor of a different smile
or how an ode to dawn
sounds different
written by candlelight.
We’ve counted
the cherry blossoms,
sewed a blanket
out of flower petals,
watched clouds roll by
like hungry waves
crossing the ocean deep.
How did we meet,
us seasonal wanderers?
There’s only ever one reflection,
just many different faces
where it can be found,
many different canvases
where we can paint
our devotion, yet
somehow we’re watching
the same sun dance
its way across the water,
counting the same beat
kept by the passing wind,
waiting for the same tomorrow
to forge us anew once more.
