Morning

MORNING


See morning as she emerges 
from the east,
Setting the horizon on fire with 
her red cloak,
The dark night fading away in 
the west,
Fleeing from her rosy blaze…

Listen as the birds honour her 
with sweet voices,
While the flightless sound the 
trumpet to wake the half-dead,
She whispers, her gentle breath 
making the morning breeze,
Dreamers wakeup to dream 
again.

Smell her unscented fragrance 
as she passes by
Rare a scent so pure;
Need not be blended, 
Nevertheless chimneys dilute.

At her touch everything comes 
alive,
Flowers smile,
Frost lifts,
A new day breaks.

She blesses her children with all 
hope,
One more chance to change,
Another chance to love,
Another day to live.

She grows sweeter by the days,
For he knows his days are 
numbered,
He smiles on his last day,
For he understands, heaven is 
morning

    Hi Litha, dropped by "Morning." One can only give criricism when critisism is deserved. On this piece there is none deserved my friend. Your sky lights up with God's own fire, all begins to awake. The birds do sing and the vegetation comes alive. This is a most beautiful morning and i would not criticise it. I would say well done my friend. May such a morning as yours break every day. Have a nice day. Catch you later. Your Friend....MIKE.

    I could use some critism, especially corrective.
