Sunrise Service

Tinker

A poem written this morning as an example of a verse form Cornish Fourteenth Century Stanza but the content is appropriate for the day... Happy Easter!

Sunrise Service

Empty cross upon a hill,
rising sun warms morning chill,
joyful sounds fill the air.
I stand within the faithful press
In MaryJanes and yellow dress,
age 8, I can only stare.
                  ---Judi Van Gorder

I can see the young girl so clearly, too young to fully grasp the great significance of the service yet recognizing that something really special is going on. Besides she has a new dress- you don't get a new dress unless something is really important. Somehow I see all the adults in this picture in shades of grey. She alone is in color. Perhaps it is her innocents that makes her shine. Spiritually- Do we fade to shades of grey as the realities this life, like your rising sun, dawn upon us? Hmmmm?

 

Love the picture that you have shared

Thanks rhymeguy, yes I remember events by what I wore...it is true. I loved that yellow dress with the white collar. Nothing fancy but it was special to me. And the event made a lasting impression obviously.

 

DC, Thank you.

I like the mix of classic form and present-day content, Tinker. Love the title, too!
