again: an aubade

My clingy heart
has never been fond
of the dawn’s pending fog
everyday sitting
outside our window,

drinking its daily
sunrays-made tea
as it waits
for the official ending
of our last night’s

nectar-sweet tryst.

Another day,
another sun,
I have to wait
for another moon
to inhale your scent

again.

In response to Blogging from A to Z Challenge: A is for Aubade and NaPoWriMo 2018.
Alba or Aubade are:
  1. a love poem, most often mourning the parting of lovers while extolling the coming day.
  2. constructed at the discretion of the poet, length, stanzaic form, meter and or rhyme. although often a smattering of rhyme is present without any particular rhyme scheme.
  3. dramatic since it is often dialogue between the parting lovers or coming from a cuckold husband or a watchman’ warning. Sometimes dialogue is silent, expressed in images.

Abandonment: An Aubade

Smiling sun always arrive
with the hope of a better life.

Maybe we are the only exception.
The poor ones inside a rich legion.

Dark nights are definitely ours,
but mornings restart our hearts’ wars.

Once the sun rays start to shine,
they remind me you are not mine.

Aubade (dawn song) is a love poem, specifically the parting of lovers at dawn. Conflict between love and responsibility is at the center of this poetic genre.

This genre dates back to 12th century France and is the counterpart to a secular Evensong, Serena or Serenade.. The name Alba comes from the medieval watchman’s cry “alba” announcing the passing of the night and return of day. The early Occitan troubadour poems ended each stanza with the word.

The Alba or Aubade is:

  • a love poem, most often mourning the parting of lovers while extolling the coming day.
  • constructed at the discretion of the poet, length, stanzaic form, meter and or rhyme. although often a smattering of rhyme is present without any particular rhyme scheme.
  • dramatic since it is often dialogue between the parting lovers or coming from a cuckold husband or a watchman’ warning. Sometimes dialogue is silent, expressed in images.

Aurora: An Aubade*

Colors changing
from dark to light,
sun and moon shifting
from dull to bright,
stars disappearing
goodbye black night,
I lie awake waiting
for you to comeback.

Night-Shift Forest

Night-Shift Forest: An Aubade*

Sun’s smiles
glinting in between
our tinted window pane,
slowly erase
traces of last night’s
forest of hand and teeth-
oh, what a shame!

Awake: An Aubade

Aubade

Awake: An Aubade
©2016 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer

Glistening warm
golden sun rays
kisses my outer dermis
lightly in haste,
whispers bright luna
has bid goodbye,
bringing with her
glitters of her sky.

Glistening warm
golden sun rays,
tries to dust off
my epic dream’s haze,
tickles the locked
gates of my eyes,
waits for my
sweet morning “hi”.

A poem you
once wrote
when I was still
your life’s
golden sun rays.
