Watercolour Dawn

Dawn sky, watery blue streaked red and gold,
by the hand of God.
Mountain ranges like humpbacked somnolent dinosaurs
Left behind from a long forgotten age.
Leafless hawthorns standing naked in the wind,
branches raised in supplication to the morning sky,
await the sap of spring

The sun, gold clad, eastern ambassador.
Whose heat spreads like a soothing balm.
Breathing life and warmth into frost bitten fields.
Lake mist hovers in ghostly plumes, above Loch Conn,
Welcome cover for the hungry birds
Whose song is the orchestral soundtrack
to God's own watercolour dawn

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i wrote this while traveling alongside a lake[Loch Conn]in the very early morning. I was struck by the incredible beauty of the county i live in and also by how much we miss by not rising with the dawn each and every day

    nice piece of poetry there...
    you mention the name.... but really...be it winder-mere, coniston, buttermeare or dervent.... the poem celebrates and rings everywhere.
    for divinity is one and for us mortals the observing eye that we depend on a unity too.
    charged and fervent lines. and you have given it a really travel by feel.... i for one was sitting right there beside you, ya on the 'coach' from bowness to ambleside... lovely
    :)

    Nice poem Noreen. It reminds me of my youth, when I used to get up very early to go fishing with my mates, on the banks of a local pond - sadly gone now.

    You've incredibly painted the dawn sky and the hovering mist over the Lake Loch Conn.
    Thanks for the note. Promised to myself that from tomorrow, shall again resume my dawn walks.

    What an absolutely pretty poem; it glows as if truly a fine painting, done in words. Beautiful.

    i was distracted a bit by the misplaced apostrophes. but, ah yes, the dawn! thanks for reminding me of it; i rarely see it. these are some nice picturesque descriptions of nature. thanks for sharing, noreen. :)
