Another Opportunity

Spring day opportunity…

Another Opportunity
Another Opportunity…spring morning

Day’s blessing resounds in morning song,
as shards bombard the landscape,
long shadows drawn out to points,
sharp lines of mirrored spatiality;
and so effervescent the currawongs,
their chatter like incessant badgering,
as work there is to do this cloudless day,
and play will have to wait.

Spring blossoms greet the rise,
pink smatterings of cherry and other fruit trees line
the streets and houses trim,
their joy a sunlit feast of new beginnings;
and shoots of green writhing life,
attest the change, the warmer encouragement
of seasons slow transition,
each day closer to the prize.

One cannot relent on day’s beguiling ways,
to awaken fresh and light adrift
like sailing boats upon a deep blue sea,
and so at windows, eyes engage the race;
while slumber’s ache does fade
as warm morning light entreats
that sequence of mechanical precision,
the stream, that morning parade.

As fervent life ensues,
and movement stirs the silent morn,
day fills up with noises sewn within,
cacophonous sounds in afferent mass,
resound in human aftermath,
as everything in rhyme begins their tasks,
in celebration of another moment,
another opportunity given.

    Ahhh – a glorious morning ! I can almost see the new birth, the shadows, hear the sounds – very well penned pulling one right into to the day’s beginnings. I love this refreshing morning verse.
