Morning Light


Travails dispelled in this deep breath of early Fall
The oak tree of many seasons holds the morning light
Reaching bough and branch create shadows
A dancing grandeur cast upon the yet green grass
So gentle is the sway of the evergreens
I too, move to the touch
Of the crisp morning air upon my face
The mirth of bubbling water
Circles, ripples, reflecting light and shadow
I too, of many seasons
In the grandeur of the morning light.

  4. HI ROSEMARIE-
    Oh how lovely the image blended with poetic words that promise, comfort, and offer new hope and light. I feel the gift of a new day in this wondrous blend and from that gift I am once again hopeful. YOU create this with your gentle stroke, pen and soul.

    Love and honor
