Dawn is a Child


Dr Abe V Rotor

Old church of San Vicente, Ilocos Sur 2017

Dawn is the child of sunrise,
azure, crimson, emerald,
curtain of a new day,
a call for all to rise.

Through the church's window,
dawn joins the faithful

in their hymns and prayers,
alongside row by row.

Over the mountain range
a reclining profile rises,
her gown of darkness fades
and soon will change.

Like the dawn I'm a child,
rising up as she rises,
to her ephemeral beauty
devoid of any pride. ~
