Out On The Porch At Dawn

Written by: Sara Kendrick, USA

Slowly the apricot sun rises

After spring's storm of yesterday

Pear blossoms quietly await sun's warmth

And bumble bees delightful play

A cold breeze stirs the bamboo wind chime

As roosters break the quiet morn

With crows calling sun wake up

Another day is suddenly born

In this quiet and stillness given

Before coyotes stir and yelp

Help me to be the person needed

One with spiritual and wisdom's depth

Let me be a solid anchor

Planted not in earth's crumbling sands

But anchored upon the solid Rock

A place not made by man's hand

Show me how to live each moment

In a way pleasing to Your commands

As I go about my daily chores

And answer my families' demands

Carol, When I can get out on the porch it is part of my meditation and prayer time. I can't get out there as much anymore. Thanks for the encouraging comments and your time spent here. Sara

So sweet and soothing Rhyme! A healing music to the heart! Only souls of remarkable wealth rejoice in the heavenly pleasure to give.. Only souls of insight have that strong conviction that they still lack wisdom and ask for a deeper understanding of the inner self and others.. Only a heart of a poetess adept to write such a beauty! Pleased to read what you ink of wonder and beauty. Best regards Sara. Be blessed always.
