The soft sigh of morning brushes through
the newborn foliage, stirring the azure
morning mist with soft hands that
twirl about, catching the tips of flowering
buds rising from the ground

As dawn aproaches with careful tread
the floors of nature flow with movement
the darkness recedes to the shallows
and niches, taking with it the cooling
dew and stillness of the night

Flitting moths find their daytime bosoms
in the bark of ageless graying oaks
while the sound of jabbering loons echo
across the lake, falling against immobile
rocks lining the lapping shore

All is never still, even in the brief silences
of spring breezes that sweep the sounds
from my ears, but then return again in
whispers of melodies that to most
always remain unheard

Absolute peace and tranquility
passes through all my senses, as I gather
the strands and threads from the gifts
that this morning freely gives to those
who have the patience to listen


 A real man
kisses his children goodnight

What a great poem, you painted a picture with your words.  Can't wait for the snow to melt and the earth to come to life again.  Thanks for sharing it.
