Beneath the Rush of Dawn Unstoppered

We, at the faultless mercy
Of He who ordains air
With colors of new morning
Have a high call to bear

Whether of prince or pauper
Young, old or in between
The rush of dawn un-stoppered
Pours out virgin Unseen

Then, as we drain its golden
deluge of touch-taste test
We each are called, beholden
To give to God our best

Jim called from near Sudbury and we were comparing sunrises. They both sounded pretty good and not at all alike!!!

our call...

 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons[a] of God.
10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. Matt.5:2-12


  1. mmmmm.... love the mind visual of 'dawn unstoppered' - i hear the soft pop as the cork is removed to pour out mercy new this morning, rays reaching to enlighten every corner. thanks for the lovely but provoking words and meadow morning pic!

  2. Hi Cyndy and thank-you. This morning it really felt like a cork popped, the sun held back until it burst through between folds of dark cloud...a rush of mercy washing out darkness with gold!!


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
