Dawn in Pemberton

Dawn in Pemberton

It’s dawn, down here in Pemberton
The sky be thick with clouds
There is no sign of life round here
So far from frantic crowds
And all the hustle, bustle
  And the awful city din
This forest in the morning
Only silence does it bring.

Cicadas! do they ever stop?
They serenade the air
Non stop, though birds be silent
Can’t hear them anywhere
Refreshing misty rain floats down
Caressing my cool skin
As morning peace seeps into me
And thrills me deep within.

Those Jarrah trees, that all around
Stand tall like soldier men
They echo with the first bird’s call
And the music starts again
To herald in the brand new day
 Bringing in a summers morn
In the lovely tree filled forest land
Of this place called Pemberton.

    Hi Peter, It is many years since I have seen the dawn. Your piece brings back the images of the beginning of day, takes my mind back to a more care-free time. Indeed you have a golden pen my friend, your images come through so crisp and clear. Each picture flows into the next flowing gently along and you gave this reader a good feeling inside. Peter, this is one of those poems you read and think isn't it great to be alive. You bring on the glory of dawn my friend.. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Nice picture painted so well. Great write...again. Peter I admire the way you paint every poem like a picture, flowing smoothly that it draws you in.
