Always Different – Poem of the Month – June 2021

Always Different

Downy pink feathers
Lay on dew-drenched grass
A Roseate Spoonbill had
rested, fluffed and preened
before startled into flight
Grey-streaked sky
burnished gold with morning sun
as fading moon bids farewell
The morning chorus begins 
and activity becomes feverish
Another new day has dawned
and no two are ever the same

Dawn

Dawn

A flock of starlings
shaken like a carpet
against a stormy grey sky
released a cacophony of sounds
breaking the silence of dawn
 
Whistling wind howled
through leafless trees
as a thick mist hung mysteriously
in suspension above the lake
waiting for instructions
 
The sun struggled to crack the sky
so it might cast its beams of light
The moodiness of the landscape
cried for relief from the darkness
and the earth craved warmth
