Early Morning by Peter Menkin

by Peter Menkin  
1/18/2009 / Poetry

Bright morning star of Winter, it awakens me to Dawn... There are few mornings when I am up from bed so early, as I was some years ago on a regular basis. My kinship to this experience of the Holy Spirit, and the stirring of neighbors is still with me, though this poem tells of an intense experience--religious. Christmas remains, and Epiphany is not so far away. I can say that I have seen a star in the sky so keen that it reminded me of the Magi and the star they followed. Of course
, theirs was the brightest possible, and so large! I like to think that we can see a star that is a reminder of Christ. Happy New Year!
As this is posted in September 2008, I note that the poem still speaks to this aspiring poet. Please check out the audio reading by the poet, that is my reading and I think you will find it good.

Peter Menkin Mill Valley, California USA (north of San Francisco)

Early morning

by Peter Menkin (2000)

Startling reminder, ray point of light (star):

come winter daytime,

bring early morning to awaken anew before dawn, with life to arise.

Stretch pearl luster and harken
with children, young parents, neighbors,

and babies unborn asleep, resting in the womb
to come forth beginning.
The new day has intentions.
You Holy Spirit stir me, health and hopefulness restore.

Audio reading of poem by the poet is here:

Peter Menkin, an aspiring poet, lives in Mill Valley, CA USA where he writes poetry. He is an Oblate of Immaculate Heart Hermitage, Big Sur, CA and that means he is a Camaldoli Benedictine. He is 64 years of age as of 2010.
