~Confusion~ The sun kisses my fresh washed cheeks It’s warming on my face The breeze rustles my just brushed hair The mist disappears, its fingers leaving a wet trace. The birds start to sing They are late it’s already past dawn The insects start to buzz On this fresh brand new morn… We are happy to awake A new day to explore New challenges we take As we exit through our door. A chance to do good or bad The choice is up to you To be happy or be sad Or spread a smile or too. The pink fingers of cloud in the east Mean red sky in the morning Will the old saying come true? Is this a shepherds warning? As the sun set in the west Only sunset just last night The red sky was at its best That should mean shepherds delight… Is it shepherds warning or is it shepherds delight? Now I am so confused, is it morning still or night? Is it going to be fine, or are storms on the way? I wish the bloody shepherds would make their minds up today.

    You know how to paint with words. The reds the oranges, the greys, the blowing winds are the heralds and shepherds of times and seasons. We mortals have no say but watch and see.

    Ah, this poem of yours had me wandering a bit off topic, contemplating 'Sundiya': the merging of night/day, sun/moon, darkness/light. Hmmm, or was it really off-topic? To me it is both a shepherd's warning, and a shepherd's delight. That is where we have arrived as a global consciousness -- keep striving for balance. Strong contemplative poem here, Mandy.
