Clouds mask over joy

Morning sunrise hesitates—

Sky’s Brilliance Singing

Early morning sun

Humility waits

Below horizon

Eager to orchestrate

 

Sky slowly wakens

Teasing rays of light

Distinct colors spread

Announcing day’s flight

 

Another lift-off

Daytime hours flowing

Sky’s brilliance singing

Harmony glowing

 

Dusk now approaches

Sunlight’s ending song

Final color show

Evening light’s swansong

 

Curtain slowly falls

Sun trading for night

Along horizon

Day’s final brake light

Monday Memories: Sunrise

Walking in the morning pre-dawn light

Waiting for the sun to resume its flight

 

Hearing the birds chirping familiar tunes

Feeling happy that spring will arrive soon

 

Stepping briskly along the charming path

Anticipating the sun bringing a warm bath

 

Seeing the shadows change and dance

Clearing a mind from its dormant trance

 

Witnessing God’s immense creation at dawn

Blessing with unique images that it spawns

 

Dashing in front goes a frightened rabbit

Making his morning visit a welcome habit

 

Dreaming of walking here each and every day

Picturing a scenic sunrise so appealing to say

 

Lifting above the distant horizon to bring a delight

Radiating sunrise brightens the morn with its light

 

The photo was taken at sunrise last fall at Walnut Woods Metro Park in central Ohio.  I am looking forward to witnessing more sunrises in the coming weeks as the spring weather allows me to walk outside more often.

Do you enjoy a favorite time or place to walk and experience God’s creation?

 

Nature’s Deployment (Haiku Series #153)

Every Day

Sunrise sends greeting

Creator’s hand wakens day—

Glorious morning

Morning sunrise over the Choptank River along Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Echoing Cadence

Soul-filled percussion

Pulsating afternoon sky–

Thunder’s rhythmic beat

Still Here

Hot days continue

Waiting for autumn colors—

Summer must insist

This poem was written and published in March, 2019.  I frequently walk at two nearby nature parks, and it is always a delight to catch the sunrise (especially if my camera is handy).

Morning’s Blindfold

Early morning dawn arrives

Missing nature’s boldest light

Covering heavens and earth

Thickest fog masks sun’s headlight

 

Ghostly, ominous shadows

Cloaking trees by hidden creek

Slithering mist moves unchecked

Nature fills with blind mystique

 

Stillness surrounds paradise

Witnessing morning on hold

Waiting patiently for change

Nature removes her blindfold

 

Suddenly, haze disappears

Hailing sun’s brilliant return

Switching on morning’s magic

Thankfully, fog now adjourns
