Aubade


Beneath a canopy
of pale dawn,
the storms of
Debussy gather.

A gentle nuance,
sky traces the curve
of Aurora's neck.

Dawn rises,
wraps herself
in opal clouds
of rain.

Aurora follows the
flight of drenched birds
while still I dream.

Jorge is right Princess. Very lovely. I learned something too. I did not know about Aubade. Yours is lovely, and the Goddess beautiful. You have excellent taste.

Elise,

what an awakening image- so pure, yet so powerful: such a tranquility yet with winged movement
"Beneath a canopy
of pale dawn,
gather the storms
of Debussy."
makes me want to dream this poem tonight, when i lay down to sleep

Since i am not a literature student missed the relevance of Aubade. care to enlighten me please.

but nevertheless the picture you paint is as always beautiful like a lovely watercolor unfolding on a painters canvas witht he colors he chooses to fill. beautiful but please you must explain to me the literary significance of the name you use.
