I am recently retired and reside in the most beautiful area of Virginia--the Shenandoah Valley. I find beauty and inspiration in the mountains every day--it is one of my most faithful muses.

Love Poem in Blank Verse
"As Dawn Begins to Break" by mountainwriter49
As Dawn Begins to Break

As dawn begins to break o’er eastern ridge
and Luna melds with dawn's soft fragile tones,
I see you standing there on rocky trail.
I’m warmed by coals yet glowing from night’s fire,
and gaze upon your silhouetted form
against magenta skies and ebbing stars.
I am entranced at moment’s magic thrall
as you look back towards me and extend
your hand inviting me to now join you.
Arising from my bed, aroused, I pull
the quilt e’er close to me and walk the path
to find you far beyond the embers’ warmth.
And then, within Sol’s cresting golden glow
above the rocky ledge, we kiss and make
love as the dawn transcends into new day.
A man is not complete without his love
to keep him whole and share the morning light.

The book continues with haiku suite (Arctic Clipper). We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Poetic Form:
Blank Verse tercets with closing couplet. Blank verse was perfected by Shakespeare. It is written in iambic pentameter and has no end-rhyme.

begin = pronounced with the long e vowel sound: be gin,

I believe poetry should be able to stand on its own; consequently, I do not append digital artwork. It is my home my words will allow the reader to paint his/her own images.

Thank you for reading my poetry.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
