This month's game is hosted by Dauvit at Crosses and Cradles.
And here's my entry.
Word -- iconic
Question -- What do you see in the light of day?
Morning. The sun rises over the hill.
Daybreak is misty and peaceful and still.
Gilding the trees.
How could I not be contented with these
Phrases that make dawn an iconic thing?
(Even omitting the "birds on the wing"..)
But Reason cries
"Dawn is just day!
Multiple problems are found on the way
Forward to night, when things darken again:
Foolishness, work, anger, sorrow, and pain."
"But, to be sure,
After the night the sun rises once more,
Showing you gently that though you may doubt
Who you are, how things work, what life's about;
Follow your heart
Trust what you knew --
Icons are windows to what's truly true."
