Dawn

“The First together is the morning itself

the marrying wish of dew

the first dance of the grass,

renewed like a child’s clock.

The Early light unaware of the low hum

that entwines the mood of the air-

strangely worshiping

in high memory cries.

And we remember the ghosts better in the morning,

the rising light that is always a grace

on the back of the things you love

scattered through the house like Lego.

The bed remains ancient in its ritual of worship

a personal attack against strangers

made up of all its own Trojan wars

hung in literature, un-debated.

It is easy to believe that is is privilege to grow old

in the morning and that age is young

and all that is above will remain immortal

regardless of loneliness.

~ Greta Bellamacina

Experimenting on a smaller canvas for some larger scale pieces that I will be working on soon. This is part of my Bloom series, but a little more abstract than the previous versions. Will be experimenting with both versions as they get larger and will share of course. xo
