Little people stood around
And whispered at the sky
You must have seen it as did I
The word was so profound

Where’d it come from I don’t know
I’ve never seen the like 
And lighting up the night so bright
I even saw it glow

At that moment I awoke
To rapturous applause
Abruptly stopping without cause
And then the word it spoke

My body’s made of letters
That flesh my meaning out
My name, that one’s inclined to shout
Feeling so much better

Who am I? I hear you ask
Important as I am
Is this another horrid scam
So you fulfil some task

Rest assured, I beseech you
Fear not what I will say
My name is MORNING here today
Arise and start anew

    What more could I ask for today? It is a beautiful day the sun shining and birds singing. I am reading your poetry in which you share a little of yourself maybe without even realizing it you have written from your soul. Thank you for sharing your awesome poetry with us David. Love, Carol
