sun rises within

obelisk mandala s

become the sun
just as it rises
a mystery within

golden within
nourished by the sun
the shadow as it rises

awake it rises
tracing paths within
a silhouette in sun

the sun returning rises as the light within

For Sue Vincent’s photo prompt this week, “Obelisk”, below.

 The Obelisk was originally an Egyptian stone monument sacred to the sun god Ra, especially associated with sunrise and sunset.

The poetic form I used was tritrina.

    I love your poem. Nicely done with this form. There’s a type of rhythm to the repetition. (I think I wrote one of these once for Jane?)
    I like the sun/shadows in the collage, too.
