Morning's so bright, air's so crisp :
Invasive frost's sun up's pleasure.
Deep delft blue heaven on display
As sun rays speak with gilded tongue.
At dawn, autumn arrives early
On uncommonly lovely day.
Forget the calendar, rather
Watch thermometers at their work.
Day's beginning is similar
To life's start : begins by leaving
Warmth, comfort, security, peace.
Whether one's bed or mother's womb.
Morning, through out a lovely day,
Our minds leap forward seeking trails
Never tread by humans nor beasts.
Not on maps, but in folds of thought.
Awakening as daylight peeks
Launches full days to savor life.
Sleep cleared all decks, secured all ropes.
Set sail, cast off, unfurl canvass.
