Just Before Dawn

if only trees bent low enough
to catch my sighing
amid these broken syllables

if only doves wove their nests
of longing too real
for me to express

if only the wind knelt
beside me whispering
in the still dreamless forest

dawning will come
I know
but for now

  1. Deep sweet longing – there is such gentleness and beauty here – i love these words, dear Joan. They have a new and different flavor – like an ancient tune in music. Thank you for sharing. πŸ™‚

    1. Something about these lengthening nights, shortening daylight hours…and during the day we have rain and clouds, wind and rain and clouds…all quite seasonal, but urging me inward even more…into my cozy home, into my self, into the deepest questions…much, much love to you, beloved fellow traveler, sweet seeker, darling Krishnapriya…so grateful you are here!

      1. It is beautiful that all of nature is helping you in the quest for deepest meaning – the journey within where the entire universe dwells. i will miss you – i am traveling for the next ten days. Please keep me in your prayers, as i keep you in mine. πŸ™‚ Blessings, love and huggie-hug hugs πŸ™‚

      2. Safe travels to you, sweet Krishnapriya, you remain in my prayers even as you re in my heart and affections! Blessings galore *smiling dancing heart*
