The Blacksmithy Dawning by Joseph E Najera

I open myne eyes and break away fro’ some private dreamings

An’ I let th’ coulde air fill me lungs and check th’ sky fo’ signs o’ weather.

Alas, I let slip th’ quilt an’

feel the coldness dance upon me skin.

Thence I step into th’ world, and

leave me sleepy room behind me,

Feel coulde skin upon th’ floor planks.

Me eyelids still weightweary so I

Brew th’ coffee in th’ silence of the house.

Outside a murder of crows is making noisy mischief.

White frost has settled on the roof tops, and

The coffee seems to take away the coulden bite.

The wee pup is sniffing the floor for some hidden kitchen treasure,

The lady is still sleeping, trying to force upon herself

another moment of solace and of rest.

I’m waiting for the feel of the hammer in me hand an’

Thankful for the seeds of my creations,

One day

To be resting on some cozy mantle.

About jedwardnajera

I am an artist and a Poet. I live the life of a poet. I published several novels. Nena the Fairy and the Iron Rose, Dust of the Moon are among them, available through Amazon Books. I have spent over thirty five years in a classroom. I am now retired from that profession. My father kept a living record of his lifetime as he lived through the Twentieth Century. He was born in 1908 and almost lived long enough to see us enter the new millennium. He entrusted to me nearly 400 pages that he wrote through the years. Now I am continuing the tradition by posting my own stories and misadventures. I am trying to post a new entry or chapter each Friday. Check in on us at least once a week for the latest post.
