Gothic Sunrise by Joseph B. St. John

Gothic sunrise

sitting prone, alone–

mesmerized by life’s encouragement.

Water, cool and easy,

reflecting the light

of a still dawn.



purple, blue and orange,

calling  from the sun.

A wet mist

covering the earth’s

shiny coat.


Mysterious morn,

defender of the new day,

awaking all of nature.

Standing calm–

removing the blanket from our eyes

to feel the Gothic sunrise.
