Of a November Morning

Venus adorns the morning’s crescent,
a glowing diamond in this eastern sky,
while waves of clouds roll beneath
the moon’s waning,

this daily joining in,
a practiced participation,
these lonely dives beneath love’s
surface, breaking into rocks of selfishness

where gleaming bands of diamonds
speak about grace,
sparkling mercies rolling beneath
our smiles, countless gifts

adorning our waxing joy,
sparks of patience and deference
and gifts of active grace
rolling through this mysterious sky.


  1. I love the “gifts of active grace/ rolling through this mysterious sky.” The “moon’s waning” and “our waxing joy” is a nice contrast and works well with the heavenly “sparks” “sparkling” “glowing” and “gleaming bands of diamonds” “Venus” and the “crescent.” The title is perfect! The “practiced participation” and “lonely dives beneath love’s surface” beautiful and profound! I loved sitting with this poem and it definitely warranted the time to carefully read and reread! It shimmers and sparkles! Nice work here once again Amy!! Love and light your way always!!!

    1. Thank you, friend. There is much to learn from God’s bounding into our natural world, if I can only look and listen and understand!
