Late riser

photoart & poem – ©2018 Laura Granby

Panning for gold
photographers scan their skyline
still blue – and bluer still – until
the sun shafts 2000k of spectrum ray
glass glints, refracting magic
eye of my camera shuttered
I’m a dawntreader in dreams
only bouncing from bed
for the gilt of downy dusk

[Aiming to catch the light but rarely at dawn – see my photo blog]

Took me a while to find my bounce for De’s Quadrille#48 so I am linking with the Tuesday Platform

  1. Gosh such breathtaking imagery in this one, Laura!💞 I love “dawntreader in dreams” and “downy dusk”.. it’s truly something to look forward to each day! Beautifully executed.💞

  2. Your words and picture are both worth their weight (Hmmmm…. that’s not quite right, but you know what I mean, lol) in gold. Lovely!

    1. thank you for your comment – I like tight! the quadrille form is good practice for not wasting words –

  3. As a person who plays with the camera and the pen, I find much to enjoy in your quadrille! I’ll go against the flow and say that I liked your use of the technical (2000k).

  4. “I’m a dawntreader in dreams” — this line leaves me breathless. There is so much beauty captured in this piece…almost as much as in your photograph. Stunning.

  5. So the beauty of the morning hasn’t dawned on you yet Laura? However dusk, though sad, also has its charm as you clearly show.

  6. What a wonderful title for this one, Laura. I just observed a gorgeous peach and coral sunset, but had forgotten my phone. But we have these most night as the sun goes down behind the mountains.

    1. Elusive is that golden light – Victoria – took me a while to find a title for this – thank you

    1. Did not want to filch from C S Lewis but photographers do tread the dawn while I sleep

  7. Oh yes, Laura, panning for gold in the Golden Hour – and the photo is indeed golden, as is the poem! I particularly love the lines:
    ‘I’m a dawntreader in dreams
    only bouncing from bed
    for the gilt of downy dusk’.

    Great word-craft Laura! Gives impression of lots of movements!

    1. Interesting comment Hank as I guess the movement is in the contrast between the risen and the late riser

feedback is food for thought....
