astonishing beauty

she blazes in
to this blushing
of an aurora sun
with significant smile
each dark second
of the day
but sadly thinking
she lived farther
than a 1,000 miles
away from
that certain gentleman
she hardly knew
yet her own heart knew his name
beating each time
she was captivated
by a romantic dream
causing her to wish and pray
that someday
she'd find love
as an
astonishing beauty

beautiful imagery, Kai! You truly have a poet's heart.

I found this tanka inside of the poem:

dark seconds . . .
thinking she lived farther
than a 1,000 miles
away from a gentleman
she hardly knew
