Ronovan’s haiku prompt this week is Rise & Save. I spent a while working out a few poems, much of it trying to blot out the idea of Rise & Shine. Again, I’ve taken slight liberties with the two words. I call it poetic licence. If you trot over to Ronovan’s blog, you can read the other entries.
Rise sun, dawn break soft,
spare the tender night shadows,
leave us our secrets.
Dawn breaks, lark rises,
sings his songs of sunlight saved
from night’s dark shadows.
Sunrise, shadows fade,
golden beams light all darkness,
save your frowning face.
