Brave & Reckless – Moon Ate the Dark Challenge: Coming of the Dawn – Eugenia

My poem – “Coming of the Dawn” published on “Brave & Reckless” in response to the Moon Ate the Dark challenge –

Brave & Reckless

ebbing of twilight
ebony sky no ivory
wandering omens
silhouettes on the shade
yes, I saw your face
star-crossed lovers
hush the sad, sad song
life’s a slippery slope
my imaginary friend

ah, not the last dance
lives left better to chance
good morning starshine
the moon ate the darkness
all the world is a stage
behold, let the sunshine in
such a lovely place, let it be
let it be from me to you
I’ll follow the sun
born to be alive

I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years of being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.

    • Thank you, Cathy! You have to be in tune with mewsic from the sixties and seventies to get it. Since you are a mewsic buff, I figured it would make sense to you. 😎


  5. There is a very Hair feel to this… if I have my 60’s reference right?
