The Beauty of Life

The Beauty of Life

A Poem by Cherrie Palmer
"

first joy of morning

"



First to arise, preparing the day. Pony tails and yoga guide my way.                     

Coffee by starlight it’s not yet 6AM and my mind is reeling as a scene is set.       

The endless sky feature’s the last glimpse of black,                                                                                  

while a hallowed moon gleams just over my head.                                                                                  

Silent morning sings its own secrete tune and a pathway to the stars makes me reluctant to move.   

An owl calls me out, I’m too close to his tree.                                                                                                    

I remain silent and in my chair, nuzzle-back.

The last bit of snow rests on the northeast slope

and the chill in the air makes me rise-up.

I return to my door as the horizon gives light and thank God above for the beauty of life.

Again, I love the imagery you portray. The scene you paint is not too unlike
the one I managed in my "Natures' Beauty."

Take care - Dave
