Morning Rose


My eyes open with the light of the day.
My dreams of far off adventures slowly fade away.

I gaze at the sunburst hues that fill the sky.
I stretch, take a deep breath and sigh.

I walk and listen to nature as I pass a stream.
I enjoy the morning smells as I reflect on my dreams.

For life moves at a rapid pace.
I must pause to gather memories that put a smile on my face.

I continue by the stream and notice a flower near the shore.
I lean over and hold the petals a feeling I truly adore.

I lift the flower in my hand.
I lightly sprinkle water, as the petals bloom in a beautiful pink span.

I tilt the flower and drink while savoring the taste.
For not capturing this precious moment would truly be a waste.

There are so many things to admire with so little time.
I must open my eyes and focus on what truly is sublime.

    Couldn't wait to wake in the morning to be able to capture the words as well as the sight of the morning due sitting upon the flowers. Loved it> Darla

    A beautifully written poem, Gregory! And, I agree, that there is so much beauty to see, but so little time to enjoy it. There is such a positive message that you send in your poems. Very nice work! :) ...You might like my poem titled, "The Shy Rose".

    Anne Lise is correct; a peaceful thought however your imagination grasped it. Lovely Greg
