The sun smiles down to send it's greeting.
The wind sighs as it runs through the trees.
Birds long since have chorused their welcome
And in the gardens flowers are tended by bees.
The people now their day are pursuing
Just mundane or perhaps over too soon.
The earth is singing the song of creation
While all of life dances in time to it's tune.

Comes evening ,the moon is on watch now.
The wind's whispering at last come to cease.
Tiny heads dropping on breasts gently beating
While bees and flowers are in their own little peace.
The people now sleeping,spent bodies resting
With unfulfilled dreams,memories tucked away.
The song of creation has once again ended,
Yet life makes ready for the dance of another day.

    Dear June, I really enjoyed this one. Sweet simple rhyme but with a wonderful message at the end. I loved that line: tiny heads dropping on breasts gently beating. Thanks so much for going to the REAL poem and commenting on my Marriage of Seasons. Luv, Andrea

    Nice expression of people sleeping with spent bodies resting with unfulfilled dreams yet dreaming of the another day's dance
