A Single Morning

With Earth’s soft rotation

The song of Dawn

Splits the silence of night.

As light fractures dark

From a gradient crescent

Of the Sun’s rise on the horizon.

Rainbow hues spread

To vanquish the Sky’s black void

And fades the Moon and the maps of Stars.

The sights and sounds of a single morning

Verges to visions and songs so vivid,

That the very Soul swells to overflow in unison.

And in this mystic momentum

Every atom ascends

To join in projecting the power of Creation.

    I absolutely love the outdoors, as I’m sure you do, but I have never heard anybody describe it like you. Both, A Single Morning and Back to Earth do a remarkable job of displaying the awe our planet has to offer. Much of the world has lost touch with the things you write about. I’m so glad to know that I’m not the only one that pays attention to the songs of nature. 😀
