Beauty Dawning

Scenic poetry that takes you there: An endless summer feeling is uplifting no matter what the season and what I tried to create in "Gentle Breezes." in "Night Snow," I wanted to bring out the magic of newly fallen glistening snow and In "Beauty Dawning," I tried to recreate the beauty I a saw in a tiny frail tree in autumn.

Beauty Dawning

On the dawn of an early October day
I saw beauty in autumn's fine legacy
where not expecting beauty to be.
All around, on yet green lawns were
lovely leaves of golden and amber trees
amid the sound of echoing acorns that
snap softly as they drop down along
in added delight of this familiar fall song.

When upon the lawn of a reticent home
appeared a small tree adorned in berries
the size of cherries that had caught my eye
with few scant leaves upon frail branches
standing tall up to heaven like a fragile
soul that withstood a desert's harshness
only to survive naked of what others,
stronger, carry on from summer to fall.

A longing feeling suddenly rushed in
urging me not to part before I could see
while this tiny tree spoke to my heart.
Lingering there a few moments longer
this frailest tree touched a part of me,
for on the dawn of this early fall day
I saw beauty in a scant tiny tree where
I was not expecting beauty to be.

Gentle Breezes

Gentle breezes
over soft blue ripples
reaching further
than the conscious eye

Endless summer sky
of pastel hues
raising sails
and expectations
till the end of nigh....

Night Snow

Starry night, clear and bright
black moonlit liquid sky
highlights a soft silent white
that glistens like pixie dust
in a fairy laden forest
that fell to night snow.
