Iris Ruffles

Poetry inspired by this picture
[Iris Ruffles | taylor sterling]

Draped in nature’s pink mist
and tender drapes of amethyst,
tender drops of dew slip toward
earth’s cup.

Dark Shines Too

Screen Shot 2016-05-31 at 1.01.30 PM

The song of Day awakens the dawn
trumpeting notes that gently stroke
ears. Eyes brightened with
tickles of blue, scarlet and gold.

Dawning Day rises strong and true
sprouting wings from
forested horizon
and flies high.

Will Day bring more truth or
simply more of life’s light?
No matter. Day is strong
and true even in the dark.

Tragedy or miracle,
violence or joy’s breath,
Day dawns true each morning.
Breathing deep
trusting
knowing
showing…
the Dark shines, too.
