every (miracle) morning

Leave a comment

Who can find words
to describe
the dawn —
night
slowly
turning
to day?

It is a flower
opening
from a hard dark bud
gradually
unfolding sepals
to reveal marigold petals.

It is a fire
creeping over the horizon,
steadily
setting the clouds alight
until the entire sky
is ablaze.

It is a symphony
of sight
which begins
with one cello
playing a measured melody
and crescendos
as every instrument
in brilliant harmonies
fortissimos
an astonishing finale.

It is an impossibility
which occurs
every (miracle) morning.

Once again I was inspired by Whimsygizmo’s Blog and the invitation to come play with words at Play Online – Magnetic Poetry.

It is actually quite a soothing exercise.
Try it!  🙂
