A Virginia Spring Morning

As the quiet dew
wet blades of grass grew,
hungry rays of sunlight
slowly consumed 
the last morsels of darkness

Faint echoes of the symphony 
of frogs and crickets
waned in the distance

The staccato overture
of chirping red-breasted cardinals
announced the arrival 
of the synchronized dawn

Leaves of ancient trees attested 
nature’s physical rainbow 
quantum leaping her celestial spectrum
to supreme expressions of exploding colors
canvassing the terrestrial plane:

True to symbiotic rhythms, all creation
coalesced into a Virginia spring morning.
