Dawn – Writing 101 Assignment 4


In quiet he sat, watched the rising light
falling through stained glass to illuminate
the church. Watched the dark driven out by light,
a sun created to eradicate
darkness wherever it falls. In the heart,
under cloud, in church–wherever shadows
linger, light shines and does battle apart
from life flowing on the earth. On it glows,
its mission never complete. So he sits
quiet, and contemplates night’s fade to dawn.
God’s free gift to us all, calling to spirits
young and old, a bright reminder that dawn
makes all things new as it showers blessings,
renews all in need, this light offering.

  1. this is gorgeous, my friend – such beautiful description of the coming of a new day and the promises it brings…you can call this an Aubade, which is essentially a poem about the welcoming of dawn :)…great work and love the image

    1. I always write first then try to find a picture to match, though, from time to time (and it is rare), i will write something based on a photo. And I agree, you are very creative 🙂
