Early morn

in gray daylight

stillness awakens

Through the timber

and across the lake

Haunting loon cries call

ravens begin to echo warn

soft ripple reach for shore

Tall pine dipped in gold

cascading down

penetrating darkness’s cover

Small birds rustle

hunger drives life to emerge

Like a gently shaken globe

the woods hold my attention

Petals of color open

with offers of collected quench

Soft winds run through the trees

calling my name

Crooning hushed lullabies

soothing a needing soul

Replenished of all sins

another day begins


  1. Sounds like a wondrous, peaceful beginning to another special day.
