Poem: Sun Rise

My Beloved, have you ever watched the sun rise?

That lights up the land—the sky

Have you ever risen before the dawn, of the light?

And see the beauty in your own life,

Where peace stood still and brought;

On a great smile:

Have you ever, breathe in the fresh ocean?

That wash away residue of nature waste,

Ruins, and mankind footprints in the sand

There greatness lies

Have you ever my dearest watched the sunrise?

Not behind close door, through a shade

And see the magnificent sky,

Where love no longer seem small; love enlarge,

You and I life.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
