THE AWAKENING LIGHT

It came again with a great awakening light,
I could see the inspiration coming right,
when night is asleep the muse keeps coming,
heralding a good news in my mind humming.

sound of poetic language playing inside,
I try as much as I could rehearse it with pride,
now I'm enveloped under a gracious muse,
scintillating tunes resonating a poetic fuse.

my thought is now electrifying the night,
with my emotional creative energy of might,
I'm now lifting a wall of darkness beyond,
my poetry is ripened like a tree of almond.

it came again with a great awakening light,
I'm now creatively enjoying a great delight,
the functionality of this precious muse,
has turned to be my virtual recluse.

I read this before Cat offered her advice. I now don't need to make the same comments as she has pinpointed the obvious changes. You've now got yourself a clever poem.

My only suggestion is how about "Awakening light" rather than wakening light?

Other than that this is good to go.

This works a treat & is a great concluding ending line- "the functionality of this precious muse,
has turned to be my virtual recluse"

Keep 'em coming!

(One )I appreciate your time and comments given to my poem.

So the best is "Awakening light" not "Wakening".?

You know English language is not my first language. Creating the right syntax; that's a challenge for us.
What is the right usage now? So I can fix immediately. Thanks!

the correct usage is Awakening. Candlewitch and One have both given you great critique. Nothing left for me to say but thank you for a great piece of work! ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?
