Banked high above the eerie glow of a rising sun
                         Dark ominous clouds.
                                                   Are they by the fearless 

Who calls to the sun with his incessant 
                                                  Chattering of various chirps
 Whistles, pretty, pretty, click, click, whirt-wherra.

At the edge of the yard a few Crepe Myrtles
                                      Which were allowed to grow normally

That is without the massacre of the tops
            Crepe Myrtle which have turned a reddish-orange
                                Preparing to drop summer's leaves and brace
                                               For winter's fury

Fog has settled 'pon the forest and the creek_ an eerie scene

                       One that gives a feeling of suspense and mystery 

There is just something about the lighting on this partly cloudy morn that adds a 
                                          Mysterious glow to life's canvas

The sun lingers just barely above the horizon seemingly to stall and wait

                         Before she gives light to this ghoulish kind of morn...
