Impression - Reading Monet (3. Sunrise)


3. Sunrise

The Sun
reluctantly
woke up from
her morning dream
carelessly
dropped some
whispers in water -
broke the calm
reflection into
pieces of
dancing
ripples

  1. Beautiful, Yuni! Your poetry is full of grace, like Monet's painting. Such lovely music. I particularly like your use of "reluctantly" and "carelessly" in the poem. I imagine after all these eons, that's exactly how the sun would feel when it wakes up.

  2. I had always wanted to writing something about this painting and I am happy that I finally captured that "impression" in my mind.
    Thank you NP! Your comments mean a lot to me, always.
