Bathe Your Heart - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

R-ising sun shines early,
O-ctober eleventh morn;
N-ew dawn has broken
A-t the day when you were born.
L-et the beacon bathe your heart,
Y-our mind and soul too;
N-ight chill has disappeared into the dark, gray and blue.

R-ays from up above
A-re making a fresh start;
N-either dusk nor twilight,
A-llow the sun to bathe
Y-our heart.

    An intriguing approach to a Birthday poem. Not just as an acrostic, but your choice of imagery is not the typical birthday fare. I applaud your creativity and the freshness of your perspective. Well done! (Report) Reply
