Another Jewel Sunrise

Pink inks of dawn glow 
through a dissolving fog
lifting botanical shadows
alive with enchanting birds. 
Rustling leaves stir the world awake.

Over the horizon a bustling city throbs,
a million or more people 
going to their jobs,
missing this quiet solitude.

Radios thump. They drive
bumper to bumper,
eyes glued to the freeway.

Another jewel sunrise 
slips right by them.

Susan, how I missed this glorious poem until today I do not know. I adore it and have FAVed it, as you and I are on the same wavelength about this. When I drive to work, and see the sun coming up, I always say "Thank you God!" aloud, in my car, wondering if the other drivers are all thinking Him/Her too.

Having calming music playing from a CD or the radio helps to make time spent in heavy traffic pass more quickly and lends to glimpsing dawn in all it's glory. Wish more were aware of this. Your poem is a beautiful gift SuZ! Have a blessed Christmas! : ) xxoo

This was beautiful and so very true. In our hectic lives it is often hard to see the beauty that is offered for free everyday. Really nicely done Suzanne

Astute observation, SuZ. Your view of the jewel sunrise wonderfully glows..pity so many will just walk by ( or drive by as you say) without looking up. Excellent poem.

Hello Suzanne … I'd rather be with bustling nature in your poem than clogged roadways on a beautiful jewel sunrise - thank you Suzanne - Lindsay
