Nature’s Spectacle – A Poem About Morning and Dawn
Cock crows resounding, penetrating
through dense clouds of moisture.
Silence stirs. Nature’s alarm clock has sounded.
Pellets of dew cover meadows in morning like a soggy wet blanket.
Forests are brimming with life
long before the sun wakes to greet the day.
The creatures of morning need no brewed elixir
to get themselves moving; carpe diem is the driving force of their DNA.
Chirping can be heard throughout the wood
and feathers take flight from twilight roosts.
Deer scatter from their beds of dense undergrowth
and search the farmer’s field for breakfast.
Nature’s spectacle concludes with Aurora’s grand finale.
And I, well I sit back and watch in wide-eyed wonder.

Brewin’ – Poem About Coffee
Dark elixir for drowsiness,
Brewed before the dawn stretches and wakes.
Steam rising, birds rousing
Sitting on the porch waiting for the morning to break.
Magical, mystical potion that revives, vitalizes
On Monday morning when we’ve had
A little too much weekend to drink,
Unable to move beyond the temptation of sleep.
Oh, sweet beautiful caffeine,
Millions owe their ability to function to you.
Sleepy head jumps right out of bed
As long as they’ve got their morning brew.
Add a bit of sugar, creamer, spice
Or drink it black just as it comes.
Guaranteed to pull back your covers
And call you out to greet the rising sun.
Sippin’ in the silence of a sleepy morning,
While the rest of the world snores deep in sleep.
I’ve got a whole pot brewin’
Watchin’ a new day stumble down the city streets.

Dawn – A Poem About Sunrise and Morning
The fluttering of a thousand wings
flap and fill the sky –
blackbirds and geese fly to unknown destinations.
The cool dew of morning runs
down the grasses’ backs,
gathering upon the soil.
A misty fog hovers beneath the trees
and the sun begins peaking out over the horizon.
Silence still until at all once
trumpets blare from tiny beaks,
announcing the break of day.
There is no greater mystery for those who choose
to open their eyes and ears to it.
No way to gaze upon the transformation
and not be stunned in stupefied wonder.
For He has written the tune
upon each and every heart,
so that all may recognize his glory
when nature’s chord is struck.
