First Light ~

At the first light the scene changes 
the darkness and shadows fade slowly 
and with that fading go the fears 
of the quiet, ominous night ~
on the terrace the dew is heavy 
and the light gleams of the silvery line 
soft sounds of people waking 
rustle of sheets and eyes opening ~
river sounds, leaves becoming aware 
of sunlight and a light breeze ~
angels that flew down last night 
and ministered to the lonely 
to the sad and fearful 
have closed their eyes 
and tucked in their wings 
they fade slowly 
into the brightening light ~
---------------------------------------
photo was taken at Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs. Co.
one of the most beautiful places in the world ~

  2. Margie, this is stunning!!! "Angels that flew down last night and ministered to the lonely, to the sad and fearful" Truly breath taking words through this writing!
    (My friend, if I am repeating myself, sorry, but I just wanted to say, that I was really touched that you and your hubby loved the painting!)

  3. Margie, you made me want to catch this first light and experience what you wrote at the very beginning in your poem. I told myself so many times that I have once in a life time to see this first light but I am so lazy.

    This is a poem of awakening. Awakening of sounds, nature and people. How beautiful you wrote about it, my dear Margie.

    This poem touched my heart!!!!

    Warm hugs and best wishes from Kaya.

  16. Margie,

    You have set the scene for those who dread the lonely hours of the night and who yearn for daylight. A lonely place for many, though there is consolation for those who able to keep faith with their guardian angel.
    Seems like a really peaceful location to visit.

  22. I have witnessed many times the transition from darkness (night - associated with fears and sadness) to light (dawn) and bright sunlight (day).
    It is as you describe it in this magic little poem. Thank you for this lovely description.

  26. Margie, this piece of poetry was very moving and captured that 'special' time of transition from dark to light......almost like rebirth.
    Garden of the Gods sounds like a wonderful place to pause.
