Burst

Standard

Sunrise held on to

Her gold

And silver hues

Mighty well this morning,

Until

Bursting forth with the power of

her glorious light,

All else relented and bowed

Upon her return.

Warmth and brilliance now

Bathe my body and dance with my soul.

Magnolia Trees

Standard

The Magnolia trees are

Blooming. The flowers are stirring.

I watch the shades

Of color change on each leaf

As the sun rises.

As the greens brighten so

Quickly in response to the

Slightest touch of light,

As they come to life.

Anticipation trembling from

Root to top in realization there has come

Another

Day to grow.

The squirrels chitter.

The butterflies dance and the

Trees keep company as they do. 

They sing in sweet harmony,

“Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

Open your eyes and heart.

See. See. See.”

Winter Morning

Standard

Writing this winter morning.

Thoughts so flitting,

Floating.

Coffee steaming,

Warming.

Snuggled in a blanket looking

Out frosted windows.

The kitty does not know what she wants

Jumping on my lap,

Then down.

I lose myself for moments

Distracted by the sunrise 

Over distant mountains.

On beats my heart a little louder.

Once again it grows stronger.

I recognize my courage.
