The Break of Day

The Break of Day

Caught by the morning sun
Spanish moss
Is dipped in spun gold
and hanging
from ancient oaks
The gentle flapping
of duck wings
shaking off water
Fleeting shadows
of leaves
carried by the wind
Whispering words
echoing in your mind
as the day begins
Gently and sensuously
with its sights and sounds

      Thanks Lucy. I was driving down a road the other day, early in the morning and sun literally caught the hanging moss and it looked like it had been dipped in gold. It was beautiful. I have also been listening the the duck wings flapping as we have a flock of snowbird ducks on the lake. So many…must be hundreds ☺️💕

    I really enjoyed that poem. It is soft. As you read there is a sense of contentment watching the world come to life. The hidden delights all around. Loved it. 🙂
