Good Morning Sunshine! Shadows In The Light

Poem tittle: Shadows In The Morning Light, Pejj Nunes 3/15/2005 first draft. 11/17/2021 completed poem.

Shadows In The Morning Light

The Morning light comes, and there is an edge to the world.

Over the knoll, through the woods, fast in his labors Old Sol runs!

Reaches past solitary trees, spindly pine, feathery hemlock and white birch.

Under multitudes of shrubs and unfurling ferns, nodding their feathery heads.

Sol laces himself around this fauna and flora. Shapes like wizened old men and women.

Bent in prayer for earthy beings, blessed animals and other things. Out stretched limbs that reach for sky.

In silence they continually pray. They wave and flutter, then there is solitude. I am stilled, steeped in what I see.

Deep down in the lushness of this world plunges Old Sol to wake what’s there! Birds begin to sing!

Into emulated souls___ stemming from the base of tall trees___He is running past___yet touching everything.

Bumping into everything. Yet, deeper darker it lays there, napping, darker on the ground.

Still, kissed by dew. In dappled golden light, holding fast to its diamonds twinkling bright.

The lace of spiders hold twigs fast in place; Old Sol winds through these sunlight hours. I am amazed.

Restless dreamers wake, just a few. Oneness is found holding her fingers to her lips.

Serenity is her name. Good Old Sol! He knows that too soon___midday comes, then noon___.

Then night, with glorious moon! Luna’s graceful quiet touch gives all rest before they get up.

Tomorrow’s magic made, by conviction and repose. With his work done, over the horizon he goes!

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
