I have been ill at ease as of late, as my poetry has portrayed but I couldn't sleep last night so I found myself up at four in the morning watching this.

Through the night I pondered,
But now I see the day.
The rays of golden sunlight
Chase the dark away.

And now from the horizon,
A golden hue is formed.
And as I gaze at this wond’rous sight,
My innermost soul is warmed.

The purple clouds are beautiful,
The long strands of silk,
Hang from invisible threads in the sky,
And when my soul does gaze at it,
I feel I am up high.

For the heavens have sent me their blessings,
And I am forever grateful.
My task now is to stop
All that made me hateful.

The problem with resisting temptation is you never know if you'll get the chance again

This has really cheered me up.  I've been a little down and sad today (had a bad morning) but your poem has brought a smile to my face.  Its very inspiring, the type of thing that you need to read to make you feel grateful and regain faith in yourself.  Thanx and I think you have made a really good job of this - Well done!

I really like this one! Im not usually up for the sunrises, but I always try to catch it setting. *sigh*. Wonderful,soothing poem, you painted the picture perfectly.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

Beautifully written. It's really nice to see you still around here; I'm sure you're improving with every post.

The flow was excellent for the first 1˝ stanzas, but be careful. Often, when you're writing a rhythmically driven poem, the flow has to be exact. It wobbled a bit around the last line of the second stanza, and completely changed by the third. Try not to change the meter in the middle of a poem because the thought-process of the reader becomes muddled and confused, leaving him/her grasping for some kind of consistancy.

The ending was a bit weak, so maybe you can find something else that rhymes with "grateful"?

Keep up the good work!

I'm an insomniac so I see many sunrises (though up here on the Rock most of them are heavily filtered through fog or heavy overcast) and this poem awakened so many memories of beautiful really is amazing how much the dawn can affect one isn't it.
I have to agree with Leah about the rythem thing, but I really liked the poem....WRITE ON!!

Poetry is not pretty....poetry is real

Great poem, but for some reason the 3rd stanza was a lil' rocky. That could just be me. Anyhoo, have a spiffy day!

I liked this. There are plenty of people out there that suffer from loss of sleep, including me, and this describes what so many people see each morning. Good write.
