Morning Stuff

Of misted
valleys
spread out
across the countryside
as spider's webs
like the veins
on the back
of my grandma's hands
and of
warming hilltops
shaking off
a blanket of fog
that allows not
the sleeping in
for dreaming time
is over
and to miss
morning stuff
is to miss
a dream come true.

Robert

RobertB,
Well I guess that depends on the stuff.
Enjoyed the read.

Yawn...did someone say morning?  What's that?
Just joking Robert.  Though I do sleep in way too much, nothing is quite like the morning...especially getting up to watch dawn.  Good job.

Dawn is the very bestest..... and I'm fortunate enough to see its splendiforous rise over the Atlantic.... 'tis a wonderful sight to behold....

Ahhh...unfortunately I usually see dawn through the windshield of my car...on my way to work (ugh!) But your poem is lovely, and accurately describes those mornings I have sat on the porch, with no particular place to go, and watched the world unfurl in light.

Robert this was good!  My grandma had those veins in here hand and when I was little I used to call them spiders. hehe...thanks for that memory!  Miss a lot when we don't see the morning, the beautiful sunrises and such.
