East Window 'News'



PAD Challenge day 28:For today’s prompt, take the phrase “(blank) News,” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem.

East windows unveil virgin grace; the panoramic dawn
Climbs through a fence in outer space to unearth field and lawn
Eyes still half-sleepy press their gazes to Time's blushing tray
Where palettes spill in masterpiece arrangements of New Day

This Artist cannot disappoint; east windows frame a wink
Of mute moment-anatomy brimming blue-gray, gold-pink
The atmosphere, His canvas; here soon history's increase 
Fills ev'ry east-faced window with His newest Masterpiece

Ancient, yet ever new His timeless Hand paints Time's new plea
With undeterred authority across Past's lethargy
And all that matters now as windows open to the east
Is what is yet to be; we inhale new dawn's glory-feast

Alpha-Omega Artist, ere we haste, first let us bow
On the door-mat to Evermore where mercy's over-flow
Lavishes earth's east windows from well-springs that will not fail
The holy under-tow of moments tugs away night's veil

Genesis 1:3-5 Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
