In the light of day (acquiescence)

Silence –
the morning star
pricks through an arc of pink
to crown the blue ether above;
first light.

You wake
as the night releases the day,
your eyes seeking comfort,
and my resolve
crumbles.


This is a mirror cinquain, written for the March poetry slam at Yeah Write.

  1. Two beautiful, very visual stanzas. I love the silence throughout, the eyes doing the speaking.

    • I don’t know what you’re talking about – you’re the overachiever! Which is why I can’t look at yours before I’m done mine. I almost posted this last week actually – I’m glad I gave myself the extra time to work on it.

    • You noticed! I do keep coming back to Eos. Having a bedroom on the 3rd floor means that, as the light starts returning, I start my day with the sunrise instead of the darkness. It’s something that stays with me the whole day – and leaches into my writing I guess!

  2. “…the night releases the day” conjures passion and possession. Wow. So, so good, Silver. “Arc of pink” is also kinda sexy…makes me think of a Georgia O’Keefe painting. I could keep reading into your sub-conscious but I’ll stop there…LOL. This is all the gorgeousness that I’ve come to expect from you.
