Meadow's Morn


Dew's glint sparkles for spring's early morn;

dawn's blue skies host an emerging sun

Teamed with light, moist grasses shimmer;

gemmed droplets form on a web being spun


In yonder waking, perched birds join in choir;

songs sweetly welcome arrival of  the day

Soft breezes rustle through leafing limbs;

upon stirred winds flowers share their bouquet


Along forest edge to the end of the meadow,

stretches petaled rainbows sprinkled with dew

Hovered by flutter of delicate wings,

butterflies chase each colorful hue


Drifting to tunes from nestling songsters,

blossom's nectar guides their destined way

Misted trails untouched by passing shadows,

are traced aloft and followed across the ley


Huddled in shallows amid green blades,

eyes warily peer within the trampled bed

Outward the gaze is keen to malice;

mother of fawn holds in quieted stead


Hushed nudging relays unspoken words;

gently it whispers loving thoughts to share

In warmth of morning's golden touch,

babe nuzzles closely inside the birthing lair


Opened with blinks with reflection of sun,

a new glint sparkles from moistened eyes

In green meadow amidst dew's shimmer,

another twinkle for morn's blue skies

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Another Handful

Just reread & the view is so peaceful and soothing calming - the poet takes the reader away from the harsh reality of now to a place where rainbows are petaled and the view is morning in nature unspoiled and fine. Nice - Lady A
