Beckoning Your Grace

Sunrise spilling light o'er a frozen lake
Still casting in deep shades of icy blue
Color back to a colder darkness make
Transparent crystals shining light its hue

For we the weary travellers of time
Casting out upon our journey will take
In the moment day beckons the sublime
A shining significance each snow flake

For only in your light does darkness shrink
Those colorless memories the night voids
Looking out from eyes of a desert sphinx
Over a sleeping world that life devoids

Shining bright every day from deep space
Giving us life by beckoning your grace

Rob, Nature provides such a rich canvas for so many inspirations and thoughts and artistic expressions. It is life itself that becomes devoid away from the nurture that is nature.

Windy, Precisely how far beyond our world exists life as we know it is such a mind provoking premise for some and yet great astonishment for others.

LadyM.. I am truly inspired by the seasonality of light on earth.

Imagery often is only a reflection of our imagination, a reflection of what is; whereas poetic impression is more about what we can make it become. Thank you for sharing you comments.

Hey Cafe Thanks!!! Always great to hear you when you chime in. You know I always liked Walt Whitman and his fastination with 'grass', but up here in the north country we got a lot more snowflakes than we got blades of grass... so there I'm saying in some inspiration....cool cool wine
