Good Morning

Kauai sunrise from the Homesteads 2018

SUNRISE

sunrise
all yellow
and pink

bird cries
my eyes
flutter
and blink

cows
meander
down to
the stream

Not sure
I want
to wake
from this
dream.

Happy Good Friday.  I hope it is a poetry day for you.  I wrote this poem  when I looked out my window and saw the cows meandering over the hill.  The egrets had left their perch in the top of the mango tree to travel with them.  I know it is going to be a good day, even though there are predictions of rain this whole Easter weekend.  It did strike me how many of my poems start with a small observation--usually about the weather.  What is the weather like at your place?  Can you write a poem today about a small observation you make?  Have fun writing.

Right now an opportunity appears, make the best of it.

  1. I like the idea of starting with a small observation--and the weather holds endless potential, doesn't it? Here in Wisconsin, it's chilly (40 degrees) for this time of year, but the sun is shining, & I just saw my first crocus--inspiration!

  2. Thank you for sharing this breathtaking photo and poem. Spring has come to the ridge in full bloom. I can't wait to try out your invitation to write about a small observation. There will be plenty of those this holiday weekend!

  3. Gorgeous "dream"! I, too, often find that a small observation is a good trigger for a poem.

  4. Love those first two stanzas--somehow pink and blink sound new--and seeing your view! Happy Easter, Joy.

  5. What a fun poem. It makes me imagine the cows starting off for adventure. The weather here...confused. Warmer and sunny this morning followed by possible snow later this evening.

  6. What a lovely way to greet the dreamy new day, Joy!
    Sounds heavenly. Thank you.

    Are those snow blossoms I glimpse in the tree?
    We have a dusting of snow yesterday with the promise of more on the April horizon.

    LOVE THE DAY ― F O R W A R D

    With each rise of morn
    I still by the glass door
    as quiet as snow
    b r e a t h t a k e n―
    another present
    prettied in ribbons and bows
    skyblue and sungold
    all mine to unribbon, unpaper, unbow
    all mine to embrace
    re-present,
    I know―
    crampacked with excitement
    gratitude
    and
    J O Y
