Secrets of Life

Soft golden rays of sunlight creates
a reddish glow on the horizon that
does not exist; it is only one of
many illusions that life creates.
Every cloud beholds a pinkish
tinge, like a Sheppard’s delight ready
to set sail in to the unknown.
Silence is broken by the 
many birds breaking into song;
innocent, untouched and pure.
Much of the sleeping plant life
is covered in dew fashioned from the
past day’s breath, like little
crystal tears ready to reflect light
thus producing many bands of colour.
Mist covers a minute amount of 
ground representing the meaning of
another day slowly being born
erasing yesterday’s misfortunes,
however, it still bares memory.
Morning has broken and countless
secrets are yet to be found.

    this is really nice, Leighann. I think it could be included in a book. how many poems have you written anyway? If a lot more than a hundred, it will be a bit difficult for you to decide on your poetry. But if you have not written so many, it shouldn't be too difficult to decide what to include in your book.LUv, Andrea
