Early Morning Light

Even in the early morning light

you stand tall against

the blossoming sun

curves and spires

all sing with desire

as your reflection

dazzles the sky

below

Do you see your treasure?

Your marvelous might?

I wish to hear the soft

and subtle whispers

of my footsteps in the grass

as I walk toward the

entryway

the cool stone

white and wonderful

as my fingertips trail

on your fine built

Even in the morning light

I wonder if this all

a dream.


This poem is inspired by Sadje’s What do you see challenge! I always love these photo challenges and this has grown my interest in ekphrastic poetry! I loved the photo for this week and was taken away by the beauty of the Taj Mahal. As this is one of the seven wonders of the world, I hope to see it in person one day. In this poem, I wanted to play with the idea of a thing as a being or a person. When I visit places, sometimes it easy to fall in love with the place itself. So, I wanted to reflect those feelings in a poem. What do you think? Would you to visit this place?
