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

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

Daybreak

Daybreak

Dawn
kick-starts
the day
delightfully assaulting
the senses
with a conflation of
lambent colors 
and shapes
Unfolding slowly
changing with
each moment
The rising sun
pushing back
remnants of
night’s darkness 
reflecting its image
in the mirrored lake
Heralding what
is to come
