A voice arose
Like the sun
A sunrise
A pinkish

Dawn
Brushed lightly
With
Shades of

Wispy virgin
Clouds
Floating ahead
Of a blue sky
A new day

“Arise”
The voice
Whispered
“Arise”
The voice
Whispered

The scent of light
Filled
My lungs
That once ached
From screams
Of slavery

From screams

“Arise”
I heard
And took a deep
Breath

“Arise”
I heard
And filled my lungs
With new life

“Arise”
I heard

So
I Arose
And
Lived

This is beautiful--excellent word pictures and the creative format emphasized the feelings. I'm glad it ended with hope.
Charla Diehl 09/16/10
Creative formatting gave strength to this lovely poem. Its highs and lows were felt while a sense of peace draped over the concluding stanza. Liked this a lot.
Loren T. Lowery09/17/10
There seemed to be a natural rhythm to the formatting of this poem that the reader is lulled into a certain peacefulness. Yet the journey of the words are emotional and turbulent - searching, falling. But still an assurednes that the author knows what they are doing - where they are headed and the outcome will be okay - and it was indeed, exceedingly so.

The imagery in your poem is awesome. I like reading it so much. It captures that cry in the dark of a lost person seeking God's deliverance. You are truly a creative poet.

Congratulations on you EC!

I sort of suspected this would place high. It is certainly deserving. Sir William, the Poet. Kind of has a nice ring to it. Bravo and congratulations, Bill.
Sara Harricharan 09/23/10
Ah, this is wonderful. I love the use of "Echoes" It lends a different dimension to this.

Congrats! ^_^
