Just another Day

Just another Day

A Poem by Dave Brown

daily doings


Waking from

A night’s full sleep

Green grasses peek

For sun or rain

Which they seek

As either flows

In sometimes bursts

While wild daisies


In random spurts

To paint the fields

With snow colored flirts

As small white blossoms

Spread throughout below

Weaving neath daisy's

Beautacious glow

Till they blend

And cease to stir

Beneath grand and stoic fir

And Alders gentle purr

And Cedar’s dressed

In bright green’s neat

With squirrel’s mongst

Their spreading feet

Where moss trends

Pon moist ground

And carpet’s soft

Upon branches found

Stretching aloft

While high above

The singing sound

Where Towhee and like

Are found

Until spent light

Falls to coming night

And yawning day takes flight

Till comes again

Early morn’s

Delight of light

Yes thanks. A cyclone is on its way. The temperatures dropped 10 degrees C. Time to chill :)

A wonderful homage to the season as well as the countryside. Your mentions of various trees and birds, flowers and light are irresistible. I am particularly taken with the description of alders and cedars and fir trees. I miss them where I now live and your poem is a great reminder.
There are a lot of flowers around here, and birds, a few squirrels, and young redwood trees, so that's fine. I think, however (please correct me if I'm wrong) on your first mention of daisies, you don't need the apostrophe. That's a small thing; I would write "daisies" there, if I were you. The second mention of that always popular flower DOES need the apostrophe.
I believe there are daisies in the photo that is my most recent avatar, potted, but still a wonderful sight. And you let readers see dawn light so gently, it's an inspiration to take a walk while the sun rises: a beautiful light/sight. I see why you like poetry that's straightforward and has a bit of rhyme to it. I like this too. Thanks for sharing!

Ah, to see the morning light when the night has been so long! Even through sleepy eyes and a yawn, it is a wonderful sight to behold! Seems there are more birds singing and butterflies flitting since the pandemic hit....the silver lining to the cloud! Nice one. Lydi**

A night's full sleep. That has to be a good thing for someone who doesn't sleep well. Certainly this lovely poem is full of appreciation for the new day. Not always appreciated so much if you have been sleepless. Full of lovely imagery Dave and you mentioned daisies. One of my favourite flowers.
