A Peaceful Hush (her morning)

A Poem by Richard

A Peaceful Hush

Through sheer lace curtains
 sunlight greets her eyes,
 to early dove song’s
 cooing calls to rise.

A stretch, or two,
 the shutters then thrown wide ...
 life’s splend'rous wonders
 on display outside.

Lies morning dew’s brocade
 spread 'cross the lawn ...
 caught in each drop
 glints sunbeams'
 spark'ling dawn.

Rise steamy mists,
 in ghostly arabesques ...
 stand floral colours,
 tall and statuesque.

Wends warmly through …
 a gentle breeze’s brush,
 whilst all around takes on
  … a peaceful hush.

I love reading your poetry and then learning about the structure you used, which I always sense in the background, but does not overtake the beauty or flow of the words. This is a visual delight, and I see everything described, hear and feel nature awakening my senses as if I am in that front yard. I am so swept into that experience, I no longer notice there is a person there also seeing all this through her window, and at some moment I wonder what she is thinking when she looks out- I don't remember what called me back to her. I have several whimsical thoughts- an answering poem- like call and response, you know, of the man standing in his front yard, also experiencing the morning and then catching sight of her. Or of her night, when she closes the shutters after taking in the hush that falls late in the evening, after everyone has fallen asleep. I guess I want to hear more of this place, or her, like you want to know the story behind a beautiful and mesmerizing painting. Thank you so much for that morning, ss I sit here in my morning, waking up.

This is so beautiful. You paint a beautiful picture of the serenity of the early morning. I love that time of day when everything is fresh and new again. Each sunrise is magnificently different, and I love listening to the birds sing as they awaken to the morning light, and seeing dew like sparkling diamonds as the sun rises before it dries it up. We have a front porch where I love to sit and take it all in. You captured this time of day superbly. I love the way you write. :) Nicely done.

I think the image I conjured up is one of an ideal morning, and I think it's one that we all crave. No alarm clocks mentioned, no work to worry about, no grumpy voices or unpleasant weather; just peace and happiness. Your words make my heart fill with sunlight. Thank you.

This is an amazing poem. The gorgeous imagery created a calm, somewhat romantic mood that entranced me with an ethereal blissfulness. You should be proud of this poem. I am looking forward to reading more of your works. Best regards.

The imagery in this makes me feel all warm inside. The descriptive words perfect to me. I'm no expert in poetry and I can't say I dislike much about this poem. Something about it just sings to me. Pen on ^^

Beautifully written. I love the imagery. The sweetness and softness of the poem is complimented by the picture.
It is commendable how a morning routine has been turned into a beautiful poem by the magic of your words.

Very artful description of one lady's graceful morning routine. Since doves are plentiful around here, I very much relate to some aspects of this morning song. As always, your poetic form is very tightly crafted & no suggestions come to mind.
