The beginning of the day can be so often missed, yet can still fill us with wonder as the earth wakes from its nocturnal sleep..The Sun rises and a new day begins..
A reflective Prose by Songbird B...

Sunrise..

The earth has turned,
as darkness recedes,
the sun breaks through the clouds
and a new day begins..
She rises..
casting her first early rays to the sky,
Her arms outstretched..
Her smiling radiant face
bidding us all
a bright Good Morning...

A New Dawn Breaks..

Serenading birds welcome
with early dawn chorus,
heralding her return..
The earth responds,
warming to her touch..
Plants reach out, bright floral blooms
turn to the sun..
The natural rhythm of life begins
with the touch of her hydrogen kiss
from hot helium lips..

As The Sun Lifts Her Head..

She climbs, rising like a phoenix,
spreading her wings of light..
Chasing away shadows,
who hastily flee at her touch.
Night must slumber
when she rules the skies.
He cannot compare...
His darkness, dominion of shadows,
bows before her, taking his leave..

Gives Her Gift To The Earth..A Golden Sunrise.

The rising of this gaseous star,
climbs high into an azure sky,
reaching out her long-fingered rays
to grasp the day.
A glorious gift to the early riser..
as he stretches and rubs
the sleep from his eyes.
Indeed there could be no finer sight
that greets the start of a brand new day,
than that of a golden Sunrise.

I'm always a little sad to delete your poetry from my pages Lady A, because I think you are truly a gifted and creative soul, but your verses unfortunately, do not belong on my work so I have little option than to remove them I'm afraid.
I don't always understand where you are coming from my friend, but thank you for looking in on me.\0/x

A really lovely poem Bev, written in your usual great style. I loved the guitar playing in the last video it was very soothing to listen too while watching the waves. A very well deserved Star Merit for your work ...keep them coming my friend :-) x x

Good evening, Songbird, 250 articles - well done. I appreciate the effort that poetry takes - I do not write it, so I may be off base, however, there is both a sense of freedom and restriction in words from my perspective and you have done justice to the sun with both condensed and expansive languages and images. ~Marilyn

Such an uplifting poem Songbird with embellishments of images, video and music. We take nature and everything within it for granted forgetting that our contribution is minuscule. If nature blinks for a while we are history and that is why we have to count our blessings every day of our life - siva

Thank you Souvik for looking in on me. Not sure that romance was quite the intention of this page to be honest, lol, but the heart I won of the young man in my life, is now entering its 33rd anniversary, so I must have done something right..lol \0/x

Nature's activities in the morning, how vividly described. We are bothered only about our own bed tea.

Beautiful poetry. I don't watch the sunrise as often as I once did - and then there were the times when it was forgotten in the hustle and bustle of life ...

Oh Songbird B, my friend. Its really been a while and as always, your pages are incredible and beyond any form of human praise... The sunrise is an experience simply heavenly and supernatural. I remember an advert done in my home country by an IT company and they used two couple of which the man surprised his lady by asking her to walk up outside through her door, just for her to open the door to a freshing set of light-orange rays from a rising sun complemented with the sea breeze! I just cant forget that advert! And every word and line in this marvelous piece just reminds me of it.
Thanks for the wonderful share
