I am dawn, but many sunsets live
within broken vessel that I am.
Fiery orange and pearly pink hues,
evening cool, the chatter of small birds,
Swelling cricket chorus – all reside
in spacious heart, aching and alone.
I die here. Some say I’m beautiful,
admire exquisite color poured out
On life’s empty page. To them, I am
object of admiration, wonder
Dark, crying sunset tears – nobody
they could touch, befriend or come to love.
I am dawn, filled with approaching night,
broken, breaking, needing love’s long light.

|I love your incremental sharings of your many selves,
they are all wondrous with talent and giftedness!;-)
Even the ones that feel broken, since it is needed to
complete your persona...
Please tell me about freebie members, I thought that was done
away with, perhaps you should delete that tidbit of info;-)
after you let me know... lol
