Calling all Creative minds to a poetic collaboration – “When the sun rises…”

Hello Everyone,

It has been a while since I have done a collaboration … I love doing these with the poets and creative minds of this community and I hope you will all join me in this project. Please ensure to include your name and/or blog url to be included. Also, any hateful or vulgar comment will be deleted. You can add your addition in the comments and I will add each verse in the order they come in the comments. I will include your name and/or blog url after your contribution. This is great way for new and seasoned bloggers to collaborate together. If you are new to my collaborations you can see an example via this link. This will open until December 21, 2019 at which point I will close the comments. Without much further adieu, I will start us off…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the sun rises,
let dreams bloom

on forgotten meadows

poetry copyright Neha (Forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com)

 

holding on
to the fading light
between stars

Everything sublime happens
When we’re silent and still
Enough to hear it

Horizon red,
Up dark blue sky,
What is a surprise!

This waking
from dormancy
such precious, delicate dreams
defrosting,

When the sun rises

Shimmering shining,

Directions awaken

Rejuvenating senses,

Start a day jazzy brandished

Shining in bouts

Serendipity without knots

Parvenu possibilities proliferate
Potentialities prosper
Prayers proceed positively

misty whispers, dreams calling
rainbow promises
love fuels faith
in the Divine
one more day
the gift of life is given

http://www.patcegan.wordpress.com

 

 

seeds of today’s promises
kissed by droplets of sunshine
come to fruition in tomorrow’s dreams

Someday we might find
a place in the sun for just you and me –
perhaps behind the clouds dancing through eternity.

When the sun rises
light breaks darkness
into splinters
of receding gloom,
opening pathways
where flowers bloom

The distant sun, a longing warmth
your soft arms wrapped tight.
The sun kissed cheek, the dimpled chin,
my shade in the light!

As a new day arise
Shots of colours
Illuminate the sky
I breath bliss
In a soft kiss

straight out
of a dream
a new day

https://tomclausen.com

 

 

Illuminating the way, for all those who seek
The meaning of life, in a world so bleak
The hopefuls stare at the sun, as it rises from the deep

https://poetrytranscendence.wordpress.com

 

 

forgiveness cheers with the daybreak
new beginnings for all
let the love in

flashlightbatteries.wordpress.com

 

 

When the sun rises
I will see the world anew
Through your eyes
Through divine eyes
The blessings that I breathe in daily

Hello Everyone,

It has been a while since I have done a poetic collaboration and I thought with fall approaching soon this would be a great time to do one. The theme of this collaboration is ‘letting go’ ( letting go of a person, season, loss, grief, dreams, anger, hate or any other emotion or object that you may choose to write about). Everyone is welcome to participate and I will add your contribution in the order they come and list the author (and blog link if listed) beneath the post. You may contribute as many times as you wish. Please note that hateful language is not acceptable and I will remove any post I find inappropriate. If you want to see a previous example of my collaborations you can visit here.  Please add your contributions in the comment section. Please include the actual verse…

#PoetsforPeace Collaboration Reminder

Hello Everyone,

My heart is saddened to see what continues to go on in this world…but we must continue to find hope and spread peace and do what we can to restore the love and peace in humanity.

I just wanted to remind you all that #PoetsforPeace collaboration initiated by my friend Michael and hosted here at forgottenmeadows is still open. We have over 85 contributions from around the world and I am amazed by the powerful messages shared. Let’s continue to unite together to spread peace… to join simply add your piece in the comment section of the collaboration post. Please share #poetsforpeace and watch this collaboration grow.

My friend Brad has also started a #peacechallenge, and I hope you join his effort and together we all stand strong behind peace.

Below is my contribution for both challenges.

You Let Go…

You let go

of your gains and losses

and walked with your dreams

stopping to wonder …

at the colours of the trees

the serenity of the cool breeze

the smell of the flowers

And there were no minutes or hours

that bound you…

To go on the adventure

of your heart

to follow

what you always wanted to start

but was held back

by some mindless banter of your mind

which was trying to define

who you were

and what you were meant to be

So you let go…

and became free…

to walk your journey

with your heart full of dreams

and eyes full of imagination

of where you could go…

you let go…
