A Dawn Like This

I've never seen
a dawn like this before
the sun subsiding
the moon bright
in the dim blue sky
Bowing to my cry
I cover my sight
tears in beauty
harboring in my eyes
only to turn
to diamonds
in the once before
night sky

  10. Great imagery with the words you convey
    With no shades of grey
    Enjoyed the read
    And the words you used to plant the seed
