Artwork: Richard Franklin "Godess of Dawn"


Come light and bless his tired eyes once more,
to see the colors, smell your fragrant dew;
ignore his prayer! Anger’s at the core.
Dire thoughts drive his tongue, you know it’s true .
Come light and pull him out of twilight’s hue,
show him the freshness though the path be worn,
refresh his eyes with all his spirit knew:
To behold beauty, one must feel the thorn,
tearing, gashing, die! Die poet, and mourn
the self of past and give raw form a chance
to speak anew, and sing rhymes without scorn
find new breath, music, rhythm, sound and dance!

Come light and bless his tired eyes once more.
Ignore his prayer! Anger’s at the core.

This is beautiful. I have saved it to read more than the three times I've just read it... Quite extraordinary, really. You are gifted with the form and the spiritual themes are expressed with deftness and grace. Dawn
Reviewed by Aberjhani 1/7/2006
What a very extraordinary meditation of the dynamics of individual healing and rebirth. Surely too many prefer the sensation of their self-righteous rage to the beauty of renewal because, I think, of the nature of change itself--that release of the comfortably known and leap into the unknown that we call faith. An intensely beautiful and provocatively spiritual write.
Reviewed by Helga Ross 1/7/2006
Your best sonnet yet, Carmen.
The rhyme-scheme's right, the rhythmn is smooth, and the message relevent.

Good work!

Beautiful composition to glow on the Major Art, and to enrich the pages of Poetry. "A Poet’s Dawn [Spenserian sonnet]" has paid its dues and delivered a profound message.

Oh my Carmen, you have once again touched perfection. I'm in awe of this sonnet,especialy the theme, and word usage,how you carried it through, like a classicist from where sonnets were born. The art and sonnet are a gift to be treasured!In my library!;-) Thank you!

I think I shall annoint you the Van Gogh of AD, you are reaching out and painting your words with exciting and new forms. Hope you are feeling better.

This is a beauty. Very well done.
Reviewed by Peter Paton 1/6/2006
This wonderful sonnet has a transforming and renewing urge throughout Carmen !
We poets and writers must be free thinkers to be able to totally express ourselves, unhindered by form, and unrestricted by convention, otherwise we will never capture The Eternal Now, which is forever evolving and changing !
Reminds me of the great Expressionist painters who met together in Parisian cafes to exchange their free thinking ideas and techniques.
The accompanying picture is very symbolic and compelling
