I have seen fewer dawns than sunsets
That grey wakefulness is a stranger
While the drowsy glory of evening is a long-time friend
Each dawn observed echoes memories of the others
Sicilian mountains echoing a watchdogs call
Gulls noisily surrendering a clay flat beach
Frost sparkled grass on a forbidden lawn

  1. It’s the opposite for me. I see the dawn everyday and often miss the sunset. Now it’s the monsoon and the dawns and dark and cold and often windy and rainy.


I'd love to hear from you...
