Spirit-Spun Dawn

linda's sunrise


Spirit-Spun Dawn
Sets fire flaming
In the womb of day.


Empyrean wings cast crimson shadows
Across a waiting welkin
Teeming with the promise of new life.


We walk beneath the wings’ shadow
To catch a glimpse of glimmer
With arms outstretched to draw the dawn
Down to the dark spaces of doubt and despair.


“And God said, ‘Let there be light’-
And there was light.”
