Splendid is the dawn
with the choir
of birdsong
singing the awakening
of the sun.
Heralding a new
summers day
that unfolds her
in lush and verdant
Petals open
to receive the kiss
of sunbeams
effervecent light
that dances on
the waters surface
in a sparkling ballet
to the symphony
of summers haunting
that awakens the
calling them to
join the dance
in their silent
song of praise
to God.

That was a wonderful poem!  Nature often sings the best songs, even if they are silent.

Thanks, ya!

Summers haunting melody
that awakens
the butterflies,
calling them to join
the dance
in their silent song
of praise to God.
