Autumn Sunrise
Máire Morrissey-Cummins


The sunrise, lambent on a gilded sea
sweeps across my bedroom wall.
Burnished shadows dance with the light
as dawn lifts into day.                                                          
I watch the shimmering daybreak,
held sacred in its glow.
It crimps rosy ripples
beneath a blemished sky.
Silhouette pines lean into the lustre,
shoulder to shoulder they stand,
in the glimmer of a new morning
as a village twinkles to life.

[url=]replica louis vuitton handbags[/url] January Morning og best av to fotografier. Kunstneren har tatt utgangspunkt i Oslo S som et hyper-offentlig sted hvor en str??m av folk med forskjellig bakgrunn ferdes av et utallfor rsaker. Hun finner frem til det som de alle kan ha felles, nemlig de personlige erfaringene i den private sf?|ren. Begge bildene kontrasterer flyktige, intime opplevelser med et storsl billedspr som er n?|rmest sublimt

Lovely to think of the sacredness of morning. My condolences to you Maire, on the death of your Noble laureate Seamus Heaney. His poetry of witness is a treasure, makes us know that poetry matters. We will miss him.

The word "village" pleasantly surprised me at the end of the poem. Since I live in a big city I had other images until then. I was in Wicklow, Ireland last year and can now see the poem in terms of the great beauty of that land.

It is good to bring our reflections of a new season to mind.

It is good to be aware of the effects of a new season. Awareness that all is not the same.
