The mist lingered,
a frosted window pane to morning’s breath,
and life in exquisite silence,
attested this delicate veil,
as moist air a thirst to inhale.
And life in serenity’s awe,
stood watching the white rise and dissipate,
and warm rays infused their golden hues,
and the waters beneath
did begin to glisten blue.
Patchwork blue on waters new facade,
glimmered morning sky,
rich and vibrant reflections,
scant white clouds mirrored true,
as mist arose to cloud on high.
And as the waters shimmered,
all manner of creature joined the throng of life,
voices in echo across the green land,
sounds of ardent life in beginnings
planned the oncoming day.
When sun in full regalia,
stood atop the broken horizon,
the cacophony resounded in high spirit,
blessed by day’s potential,
and the glory of being.
Day then settled into its path,
and shadows lessened, in time’s extended view,
as on wing and land and bow and burrow,
all in purpose of life ensued,
as dawn bows, takes leave, the day she did bring.
