I write what I feel…

Dawning

Sunrise

Sunrise

Dawning
.

Birthing, beginning, appearing, occurring,

Rays of light shining bright,

Sparks of perception,

Conception, in the night,

Comprehension, apprehension,

Understanding, awakening, insight

Emotions grow wider, softer

As we age, time spent intent

On introverted expansion,

And other dimensions,

Getting to the kernel of recognition

Of what makes us tick and others tock.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. i think as we age we def get more in touch with who we are and hopefully that translates as well in how we interact with others as well…

  2. A very thoughtful poem, adee. I ‘m sure our insight does become more finely tuned as we get older.

  5. I especially like

    “As we age, time spent intent

    On introverted expansion,

    And other dimensions,

    Getting to the kernel of recognition

    Of what makes us tick and others tock.”

    And the last line is particularly clever.
